First, after much waffling over it, I finally decided to attend the local NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) Kickoff party in Lansing, MI. Many of you know I keep a third shift schedule, so attending an early afternoon event isn’t something I’m really thrilled about.
But it was so worth it! I had the opportunity to listen to fantasy author Jim C. Hines talk about…writing. Funny guy.
I also had the opportunity to see that there are a whole lot more writers in the area than I realized, and am going to actively work to seek out a group that meets regularly. One that’s not too far from home. I hope.
The second nice thing is this… There was an email waiting for me from Morgen Bailey. She’s rerunning my interview (the link is no longer valid) from May, if anyone missed it and/or is interested in reading it.
And now, since this isn’t a regular day for me to be posting, and since driving to Lansing on not enough sleep made me even more tired than I was, I think I may take a Sunday afternoon nap. And if I get in there quick, its still will be afternoon.
