2020 Year In Review: Money Edition
Each year, I complete my annual planning workbook: Write Your 2021: Reflect, Set Intentions, & Chart a Course for Your Writing Life.
One of the things I track, and like to share about, are the various income streams I've established to help support my creative life.
Over the last few years I've shared these money updates on the blog, in part because us creatives aren't always as honest and transparent about the role money -- and more precisely financial security -- plays in our ability to create and do good work in the world.

Picture Books for Puerto Rican Navidad
In Puerto Rico La Navidades are celebrated from Thanksgiving to las Octavitas (the eight days after Reyes -- aka January 14).
I wanted to celebrate our unique approach to the season by featuring some of the picture books that best capture the spirit of our Navidades Boricuas.
Plus, I've included below the Sesame Street Holiday CD that features María & Luis singing an aguinaldo (traditional Puerto Rican Christmas Carol).
¡Wepa! ¡Feliz Navidad!
