This roundup of posts from last month (and a few from January) includes stories about writers and writing, both craft and business, as well as the publishing industry.
There are also articles on technology, energy and issues relating to the health of our planet. There was some interest in the weather last month. And, of course, some posts about the law.
Business and marketing posts generally make an appearance in these monthly roundups because I like to see what other people are doing. They help keep everybody’s skills sharp.

Thanks for sharing our post, Kathryn! Are you thinking of trying a writer’s residency?
The Write Life
I am indeed, or perhaps a conference. I am working on exercising my writer’s muscles with flash fiction and short stories. Then we’ll see where that takes me.
