Apparently I really like these two-word imperative titles. They work! I am writing and I am dancing because I found out yesterday that the truly wonderful Dancing Girl Press will publish my chapbook, A Woman Traces the Shoreline, in December of this year! They put out beautiful, hand-made books by women and I feel like I am in excellent company. I’m really honored.
So who is Nancy? Why, she’s me, of course. A friend, in congratulating me upon hearing the news, remarked that I have been such a “Negative Nancy” about my writing lately. We had been talking mostly about memoir, I think, but either way he’s right. I have been and it’s been for longer than just lately. So clearly that has to stop.
Between this great news and the equally wonderful project-in-progress with Kattywompus Press, it’s time to put on my party dress and my pretty shoes and get out on the dance floor and boogie.
