I Am Lucky Enough To Be An Instructor Here…

Today was called a craft day and for over three hours I talked about Writing Into the Dark. And then had a wonderful lunch with ten writers talking all sorts of fun things.

And then spent dinner with three old friends that I wish I could see a lot more.

So except for the altitude issues where I find myself suddenly out of breath (yes, I am drinking a lot of water, but I come from sea level and this town is over 6,000 feet up), I’m having a blast.

Great seeing friends, meeting new people, and wonderful writing conversations. I’m looking forward to the next day or so.

And in case you were wondering, I have more than enough time here to do business just like normal. In fact, I actually have more time here than if I was at home. So if you have questions on anything, or want to sign up for a workshop or something, don’t hesitate.

      I would imagine so. They were recording and I kept having to apologize to the microphone for swearing. (Grin)

      Just got off a fun but short panel with Mark Coker and a New York editor and a New York agent, with Mark Leslie moderating. Nobody died, but it was a fun way to start the first day of the regular conference. (Grin)

      And Mark Leslie Lafabvre and I did a Facebook live two minute chat while we were waiting for the panel to start.

    I live in Santa Fe, which starts at 7000 feet and goes up. When I visit sea level, I never have to breathe. You guys have so much oxygen. HA!
