Neglecting the blog, again

I've been writing elsewhere, though.

Here's my last column for Literary Mama.

And here's today's installment at the Mama, PhD blog at Inside Higher Ed.

Nick's last day of school is today--and I thought I'd post this picture here, since the tattoos are, yes, Dreamdark tattoos. Very cool. The whole concept was his idea; I was just his stylist. (The hair is a spray-on color that washes right out, unlike Mariah's pink hair...)


  1. Green hair? Or a wig? In any case, it's striking.

  2. I'm sorry to learn that you're moving on from Literary Mama, but at least I'll have the pleasure of reading your work in other places.

    Enjoy the class and time away!

  3. Hi Nick! Libby, I loved your last column at Literary Mama.
