Happy weekend

That’s all from me this week. With the approach of fall, I’m feeling more like this than like that, but my mood may have more to do with the fact that I’ve neglected my manuscript for [expurgated] than with the shorter days and gray skies. Fortunately, there’s a cure. I find it’s best consumed in excess, over weekends.

Vancouver’s Annie Reid takes over tomorrow and most Fridays. She likes to hear a “Miss” when you drop her name.

“I started reading Muriel Spark for the first time ever,” she said in email today. “Can I just write about her all the time now?”

No problem on this end.
