Episode 12: Surviving Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving week to those in or from the United States, and happy penultimate day of November to everyone else. We're so grateful for each and every one of you!

This week, we give some podcast recommendations in response to a listener question, and we do a mini-critique session for this month's writing prompt. Then we wrap up with nine tips for surviving Thanksgiving (or any busy or disruptive period).
