The longer I’ve lived the writing life, the more I’m learning about and accepting the idea of seasons. I’ve learned the value of resting from writing and during that same time the value (and joy) of losing myself in reading books. Now that it’s one full month into a new year, a season of more regular writing has (at last!) sprouted new life.
This week marks the “official” release of Measuring Time & Other Stories from Wiseblood Books. Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, I’ll be at the Catholic Imagination Conference at Loyola in Chicago promoting the book at my publisher’s table. Folks on my book-launch team have already begun posting about the book on social media, and reading their words gave me encouragement.
Today is the last post of 12 discussing the stories in my forthcoming Measuring Time & Other Stories (out in September from Wiseblood Books). For the past months, I’ve been sharing the composition history of these stories that I’ve worked on and lived with for years. I’ve enjoyed journeying back in time and reflecting on these stories, and I’m excited for readers to enter the fictional worlds I’ve created.
