That Creaking Noise You Hear...

is me opening the door and stepping back into this empty space.

There is no excuse for my not having blogged lately, but there is a reason: I'm working on a semester-long project for my MFA project. This requirement is, clearly, one of the things that separates the Masters of Fine Arts from the writing workshop. Well, this and the tuition.

Tonight, however, I was with my MFA friends, my fellow writers, and one of them—James M. Chesbro—suggested that I might be well-served by...blogging. Having read one of his posts that left me with goosebumps, I thought, "Well, right."

I'm going to suggest that you run right over and read Jamie's piece. I can call him Jamie because we're friends and fellow writers, something I'm proud to claim. Read it and you'll see why. Here's the link: http://jamesmchesbro.blogspot.com/2010/02/stranger-at-gas-station.html

Duly inspired, I'll be stopping in more often. Hope you'll still be here.

Thank you Elizabeth. I am quite humbled by your post, proud to be claimed, and look forward to reading more...I'll be listening for the creaking. Your blog is wonderful.

Elizabeth,
I picked up your book at the Fairfield Borders. It's fabulous. I would love to feature you as an expert author on my women's empowerment Web site, http://www.hollypinafore.com. Please check it out and send me an email at holly.pinafore[at]gmail[dot]com (spelled it out this way because I don't want spammers to get this address!)

Thanks so much. I was at the Fairfield Univ. poetry night recently but was late and missed your reading. I felt terrible.

Keep on being amazing :)
