Writing, Reading Saint Joan, Other Things

After having taken about a month off from writing, I’m writing again. I won’t say what or whats just yet. My former policy, of many years, of ever, was that I did not discuss what I was writing while I was writing it and that really works better for me. It also works out better for those times when you
