My Writing Comrades
This wonderful group of women is having a glorious time in Mendocino at a sweet little writing conference. We are working with seasoned novelists and poets, discovering all kinds of new things about our craft. We are also talking non-stop at meal time and as we walk from our motel to the conference site. Last night, we read at the Open Mic, splashing Fort Bragg with a Sonora presence. We walked out of the reading, patting each other on the back and feeling quite accomplished. One more day of camaraderie, with a gala dinner and keynote speaker tonight at Hill Top Inn in Mendocino looking over the Pacific Ocean. I'm fortunate, indeed, to have these wonderful women as my comrades in writing.
