It’s been a long time. April 6th, it seems. It’s been a long, long summer mostly full of busyness (helping my husband launch a business) and sadness (my dog, the one I’ve had since 2000, when she was a pup, died). But it’s time to come back, and to write. I need to write. My plans include frequent (and consistent!) posting here, publishing one of my Nanowrimo novels to Kindle, and researching herbariums in preparation for writing a book about keeping one.
