More Interesting Conversations

Even More Really Interesting Conversations…

Not only did I have a fun conversation at lunch today with three other professional writers, but tonight four of us found an area off to one side of the Anchor and talked for almost two hours. All about business.

The workshop has a policy of no blogging about the workshop until after it’s over, so thus the vagueness of these posts. But one more day of fun, then back to normal here.

And to some fun posts and announcements that might just surprise a few of you. I know it’s been fun here.
