I haven't posted in a while because I have been working on a memoir and on homework for a writer's workshop in Zurich this weekend. There, I hope to meet other European-based writers, with whom I can exchange notes and receive some useful critiques. Plus I'm looking forward to learning something. Working on a memoir is not easy coming from a newspaper background. I'm used to writing about zoning laws and neighborhood squabbles, not about personal disasters.
As I write, I realize that I'm late with preparing that hot lunch. My two children, their two friends, and my boyfriend are expecting a hot meal in less than an hour. I better get to it.
