I stumbled upon this article in the wee hours of nursing last night, and just had to share. Whether or not you’re a dog lover, it’s a beautiful story that restores a little bit of my faith in humanity (and hope for our future) at a time when we all need it the most.

GILMORE GIRLS IS COMING BACK!!!!!!
Writing tonight might have just flown out the window. I’m too excited!!!!!!!!
Check out this article from The Hollywood Reporter:
A few nights ago, I sat in a circle with six other women, a clump of burning sage, two lit candles, and all of the positive energy we could muster. We chanted. We meditated. We visualized our deepest selves and tried to hear — in a world full of so much anxiety and so many distractions — what our souls wanted to tell us. We turned our greatest fears into confetti, and willed our strongest desires to be.
And even though it’s almost Halloween, this had nothing to do with witchcraft. There was no blood, just paper. Instead of daggers, we used pens. And rather than kneeling in a clearing in the middle of the woods, we sat on mats and blankets in a yoga studio. (Yes, I realize all of these images are of stereotypical “Hollywood” witches, but at least I didn’t mention pointed hats!)
I’m writing about this because a few years ago, it’s the sort of event that I might have given a bemused smile but passed over. A few years ago, I never would have opened myself up to a group of complete strangers the way I did the other night. Perhaps this change is due to motherhood. Perhaps it’s because two letters have rocked aspects of my life that always seemed like a given. Perhaps it’s because the world is a very scary place right now — or because I’ve reached the age when people realize just how scary it’s always been. Most likely, it’s because no matter how positive I think I’m being, or how often I try to deflect the bad when it rears its ugly head, stress and worry still find a way to seep in. If that doesn’t happen to you, I’d love to hear your secret. Continue reading
Here’s a link to the great article that appeared in last week’s New Canaan Advertiser. It’s Desperately Ever After’s first official press, so please forgive me for being giddy 😉
Check out luxuryreading.com for a feature about Desperately Ever After and a giveaway.
And if you live in the NY/CT area, snag a copy of this week’s New Canaan Advertiser (on news stands through February 26). Reporter Aaron Marsh did a terrific job capturing the essence of Desperately Ever After–and proving men can like it too! My favorite line: “Kenyon’s colorful imagery and often quick, lighthearted style makes it easy to keep flipping pages.” To Marsh and everyone else, I say, flip away!

You can indulge, comment, and then hop around to the other writers’ sites (as will I) and nibble on some more. After all, what is Valentine’s Day about if not sampling? Sampling chocolates… sampling lips… sampling fantasies… Continue reading
There are only 7 days left to submit something for the AKC Family Dog’s 26th Annual Fiction Writing Contest.
I’ve been very into dog fiction lately, ever since I found a copy of Dog is My Co-Pilot: Great Writers on the World’s Oldest Friendship at a Cape Cod flea market. It’s filled with fantastic (funny, sad, inspiring, etc.) stories about humans and their beloved canine friends. Continue reading
