No blog

Sorry folks. I didn't really forget to blog. I forgot what day it was.

I'm at a writing class weekend with Donald Maass, author of the Fire in Fiction and Writing the Breakout Novel. Yesterday we had a session with author Nancy Pickard. Her latest book is The Virgin of Small Plains. A good read. We spent a lot of time dissecting the book and she talked about her process. Endlessly fascinating to us authors. The finale of the day was watching Donald Maass and Nancy Pickard brainstorm her next book. Wonderful to see the sausage being made.

Today was the first of a two class with Donald Maass. He asks us a lot of questions and we write most of the day. It's great fun and makes for some wonderful writing.

So sorry. I missed you all today.
