I Meant To Write This A Week Ago, But I've Been Busy...Writing!

I want to give a big shout out to The New York Writer's Workshop, for their excellent Fiction Pitch conference.

I got some solid mentoring and advice from my facilitator, the incredibly astute Allison Estes, and valuable feedback from both my peers and the editors and agents they set me up to interact with.

And not for nothing, but I walked out of there with multiple agents and editors requesting my full manuscript after I'd had a chance to pitch them.

I found the whole process to be a great learning experience, and a solid opportunity for me to get in front of people that matter when it comes to my manuscript. They were a class act all the way, and I very much felt it was worth the money.

I would recommend the experience to anyone.

I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For

Life, it seems is moving forward.

Oh, don't get me wrong, it always has been. Even when I've dug in my heels and let it drag me, it still goes on. Even when you feel like you're not moving towards anything, it still goes on.

The kids get older and I get older and I pass the anniversary of my marriage ending or a job beginning, and I keep looking.

My Son Had A Fever, So We Had A Conversation

My son was sick on Tuesday. Oh, it was nothing traumatic - a simple virus that stuffed his sinuses and gave him a cough, and along with that came the fever.

The school nurse clocked him in at a respectable 103.6 degrees Fahrenheit, so I left work and he left school. And once I settled him in the car, I got to talk to my son.
