Me and Jen De Leon’s awesome mom Dora at the Write-In JP.

Here’s what has my attention right now.

  1. The year is flying by as a Writers’ Room of Boston finalist. It’s a thrill to be part of the Room, and so wonderfully quiet there.
  2. Taking my first Creative Nonfiction class. Love instructor Joelle Fraser but HATE the endless scrolling I’m forced to do with Canvas. Please switch to Wet Ink, which is user-friendly and interactive.
  3. Had so much fun at the Write-In JP–Using Stories to Break Down Walls. Took a mini-class with the ever lovely Grace Talusan, made new friends, listened to talented kids at the open mic. Thank you, Jen De Leon!
  4. “I’m still here.” Blown away by the personal essays seniors at Margarita Muniz Academy wrote. Privileged to participate in 826 Boston’s FIRST College Essay Academy.
  5. Met Michael Blanding at a party and fangirled a bit. He was so nice and down to earth.
  6. Just had the first meeting of my new memoir writing group at the beautiful Cambridge Public Library. We’re still figuring out our name.
  7. Revising, refining and rewriting  To Have and To Hoard, my memoir of the love triangle between me, my husband, and his stuff.
  8. Applied to be a Writing Fellow at 826 Boston. Eager to extend my essay mentoring to working at the BTU Writers’ Room in my amazing JP community.
  9. NetCars now open for business! I wrote the content, including their tagline.
  10. Gearing up to submit a proposal to Muse 2018.
  11. Enrolled in the Copyblogger Certified Content Marketer course. Can’t wait to become Certified!
  12. I’m looking for a full-time job. Contact me if you hear of a need for a content specialist or editor in a digital and/or innovation company.
