Writing updates from my desk pile @emily_m_deardo

Notes from the writing room:

  • This week I'm finally adding the new (and hopefully last) section to the memoir. I've nicknamed this part the "Dominican section", since it deals with me joining a Dominican parish, discerning a vocation to be a cloistered nun, and things that happened after that. (No spoilers here, guys.)
  • I'm writing up my D.C. trip on the blog tomorrow, which, coincidentally, involves more Dominicans. (Subscribe to the blog if you don't already, please?) It was a picture-perfect weekend, weather wise, which was so nice, since the last trip I made to D.C. involved snow and cold.
  • I'm also writing my next Real Housekeeping column this week, which involves how to stock your pantry and create easy meals from your food stash.
  • On Wednesday in this space will be a piece on revising vs. editing: no, they are not the same thing!
