Inspiration, Encouragement & New Friends

Attended a writing workshop today with 5 other ladies ~ okay, five ladies and me ~ and really enjoyed myself. There were 3 new people there for me to meet, along with an actual, published author who came to Dodge to give us some ideas, encouragement, etc. for our writing.

Bought her book and read it after. Loved it! It's a collection of short stories and I really enjoyed the different points of view, different writing styles. Plus there's swears in it {giggle}! Check it out if you can, or talk nicely to me and bribe me with martinis and I'll loan it to you.

On the down side, I missed the big town-wide garage sale. My head whirls just thinking of all the wheeling and dealing I missed!

On the up side, didn't spend the $31 profit I made selling stuff. Thanks again Black Betty, Pebbles and BamBam for looking after the sales while I was off putting pen to paper. Much appreciation. I'll dedicate my first book to you all.
