At the Wyrd Words novel workshop, and it’s going swimmingly. I arrived last night at this splendid house, to find Valya Dudycz Lupescu and Stephen Segalhad everything all ready for us. I was joining workshoppers Sam J. Miller, K Tempest Bradford, Scott Woods, Craig L. Gidney, and Eric San Juan. On arrival, Valya served us a delicious chili, followed by birthday cake for me (so sweet!) and cheesecake. We just spent time getting to know each other last night, preparatory to four days of intensive workshopping. That’s the room I’m sleeping in; very comfy and lovely.
