After two busy weekends with workshops and all the attendant preparation and publicity, I am back at work on my book and it feels good. I was pleased to discover that my characters hadn't run away and started sulking.
I loved doing the workshops, however. It was great meeting so many talented and enthusiastic writers and I'm always reacquainted with so many important aspects of writing when I'm preparing for these days. The benefits are mutual -- no doubt about that.
Before we left Tarzali, we had a couple of days of sunshine, so progress on the extensions revved up. It was rather exciting to have men in tool-belts about the place -- oh, and to see the building take more shape.
