Eleven Jewish Women You Should Follow

I love round-ups and… I also really don’t love them. I’ve been included in them, which feels great! Who doesn’t love to be noticed? But I’ve also been excluded from others, and that hurts.

Cold Weather Creativity

One of the challenges of having regular deadlines is, well, meeting them. Coming up with ideas that are satisfying, that I think people might (maybe? hopefully?) like or relate to. Some weeks it’s so clear. Other weeks it’s really not. Some weeks the pieces come out right away. Other weeks I have to struggle to… Continue reading Cold Weather Creativity
