Fearless Writing!

Crescent Dragonwagon and my workshop friends. My son offered to come and take a few photos- free of charge. Thanks Mike! Check out his website. He didn't have much time so he only took 8 frames...but I liked them all very much. (got my hair all purdy before I made the trip and then got up late and didn't have time to get all "done up". Oh well).

This workshop..well, it was a play and work. Brilliantly taught. I met some extraordinary writers in the past couple of days..one who truly didn't have a clue how very outstanding she is! It wasn't me. :) I am working on it though...and I just have to keep writing. Thank you Crescent for keeping it REAL. Seriously...one of the very best decisions I've ever made in my life was to do this thing. As Ms. Dragonwagon says, "Nothing is wasted on the writer."

BTW...Linda warned me about hermit crabs and sleeping naked under the ghost hotel in Belize!

P.S. My granddaughter is taking me to her pre-school for show and tell today...so I best get cleaned up. It takes me longer to paint the barn these days.

Looks like it was a blast! I love Portland. Gotta go back one of these days.

Preschool show and tell: "This is my grandma. Do you like her?"

"Yeah, she looks pretty nice."
