I managed to get to WMG offices where we hold the writer’s lunch back behind the new store. It’s a cool feeling going in through a store to get to a secret writers hideout. Very few of us there.

    I enjoyed Kris’ update on Miss Thang’s status on her Facebook page ( I needed a good laugh this morning, and that was it. So glad she’s doing well. Also, I very much envy you the writers’ lunches. Though I do have one very close professional writer friend with whom I get to sneak off and go camping (we’re both about your age, so we call it “cramping”) and power-limping over some hills in the Gila River wilderness. Sure looking forward to the Teams in Fiction Workshop. It will begin only shortly after the latest cramping adventure.
