I will be participating in NaPoWriMo again this year on my Tumblr
30 poems in 30 days.
For at least some of the poems, I will be using the Bibliomancy Oracle as a writing prompt.

April is also National Bibliomancy Oracle Month.


If you're in the DC area next weekend, it's not too late to sign up for the Conversations and Connections PRACTICAL ADVICE ON WRITING Conference on April 5. At 10:45, I'll be participating on a panel discussing collaboration in writing.

In other news, it is March 30 in Virginia and snowing.
