new year, new adventures

Forgive the silence as it's been a new definition of busy in my life. The past few months had me shuffling between homes, stacking jobs, and falling short on adventures because of it all. 

In a few days, I journey aboard the Blue Bird for a new Unchained Tour with a fresh crop of storytellers that cuts through the Deep South. I'll be touching ground in all these towns: Chattanooga, TN; Huntsville, AL; Nashville, TN; Memphis, TN; Booneville, MS; Oxford, MS; Birmingham, AL; Montevallo, AL; and Carrollton, GA. I'm very excited to power-hang with Sara Kaye Larson in Memphis.

Afterwards, I'm off to Vermont Studio Center for a writing residency I was so lucky to receive. I'll be in Johnson, Vermont, a little mill town in the belly of some big mountains. It's going to be cold, productive, and a bit of a literary sanctuary. 

What I haven't said, is I could cry already about how much I'm going to miss my dog! 

Still, here's to writing and many adventures in the new year.
