Jobe’s Long-Awaited (Deepest Apologies for the Delay) Second Memoir Workshop Post

Before the fall semester started, before the house hunting, before the summer vacation, there was a dedicated band of folks awaiting with bated breath the posting of the memoir info from our last workshop class. There’s an adage about trying harder and failing better, so I will take that, in this case, to be synonymous with that other adage, about better being late than never. Apologies and deepest love.

Jobe Update

Hey y’all, I just wanted you to know I haven’t fallen off the face of the planet. I owe everybody the memoir recap from the most recent workshop class and it is patiently¬†waiting on my computer for me to get my act together. I’ve been working on a solo project,¬†http://jjobe.svbtle.com/, for the summer semester. (I’ve also made it available here http://justcallmejobe.weebly.com/, in case I decide to stop paying for Svbtle.) But I’ve also been looking for a “forever home” for myself and my family, which has taken up gobs of my conscious and unconscious life of late. I hope to return to regular posting before long, and I thank you for your patience and dedication! Until next time.

Keep Writing the Good Write,

Jobe
