Daylight Savings Time hasn't even ended yet and there are still plenty of green leaves on the trees, but I'm already feeling that late autumn melancholy. Maybe it was the freak October snowstorm last week, which was just an annoyance for me in that it reminded me winter's going to insist on coming around again this year, but it knocked out my parents' power up in Pennsylvania for almost a week, which was pretty scary.
And maybe I drank a few too many jack-and-cokes last night because I was feeling stressed about various non-writing-related things that just haven't been going so well lately. But at least on the writing front, life has been kind lately. It's good to have at least one area of life going one's way at a time. At the least. More would be OK, too.
So here's my entry in the Poets & Writers directory: http://www.pw.org/content/janelle_kihlstrom
