June 11-18, 2018. Devon is a writer in residence at the Weymouth Center. Her project is The Family Elephant’s Jewels and–while numbers aren’t everything–she puts more than 30,000 words on the page. And enjoys herself enormously. The book is now one section away from being complete in it’s first draft.
May 2018. Devon gets a rest-of-the-year contract as a food reporter. Cool beans. “This is Bridget Jones, for Stand Up! Britain, looking for tuna.”
April 2018. Devon tackles a 20,000 word writing goal for Camp NaNoWriMo, and makes it to right around 13,000. We’re blaming it on the 5-day migraine. And life.
March 2018. Devon signs up for Camp Nanowrimo. which is right around the corner, in April. The goal is 20,000 words. Yes, while homeschooling.
March 2018. Devon gets her first-in-a-long-time writing contract, this time with QSR Magazine (a restaurant trade magazine). Her first articles should be appearing in May.

February 16, 2017. Still full-time homeschooling, Devon has joined a new writing group and is about to start another, and is also very busy sweeping distractions from her many spinning plates. Look for new content on The Starving Artist in February, and new stories and books beginning in March.
