June 1 has felt like a bit of a New Year’s beginning. Starting this week I’ll have a new schedule and just on cue, the weather has turned hot in Houston. This change in the month/seasons has been marked in our family by this book. I have also given myself another 30-day challenge — which I may or may not share. (So far though, day two, and I’m still on track!)
I was thinking of coming up with a Summer manifesto. Maybe it needs to be illustrated and not just put on a post-it. But this manifesto will include enjoying every ounce of the longest days of the year (another reason I love June) by riding bikes and grilling out more. I know by August and September I’ll be shuddered indoors like it’s the dead of winter in Michigan, so I want to take advantage of not melting while I can. But mostly I want to create more… more of everything.
And soon I’ll get to create with words and hopefully with some of you. This week marks the start of the summer writing workshops, so if you’re in Houston, let’s write together (Tuesdays & Fridays).
Hey Houston Writers!
The dates are set and I’m ready to write! I’m trying something new this summer and instead of trying to organize several six-week sessions, I want people to just come and write when they can. (Yea commitment-phobes!) Summer is full of unpredictable schedules, but you can count on getting your creative fix at SWWS every Tuesday and/or Friday starting in June going through August.
So the schedule is as follows: Tuesdays 6:30-8:30pm & Fridays 1-3pm. ($20 per session) || Saturdays June 21, July 19, & August 16 from 9am – 1pm ($35 per session) *If you just want to come try it, your first session is always free!* Come to one, come to them all!
SWWS has also joined Instagram. I’m not a big fan of most social media, but this is a platform I can get behind. I’m a lover of words + pictures and I’m excited to engage fellow creatives in this unique space.

The building which houses my studio has won one of Houston’s 2014 Good Brick Awards. There is a tour this weekend and if you’d like you can stop by the studio to come and see it first hand. I will be there from 12-4 on Saturday and Sunday this weekend!
