All settled in.

I'm all settled into the dorm, after a very long day.  The drive to Kansas was pretty boring.  Breakfast in the Amana Colonies was spectacular.  I don't think I've ever walked out of a restaurant so full before.  I didn't eat again until dinner.  Thanks, mckitterick!

I expect to be pretty busy with the workshop over the next couple weeks but I'll do my best to keep people updated on how things are progressing.  Everyone I've met has been great and I'm really looking forward to sitting down and getting to work.  I'm even going to sit in on some of the novel workshop run by kijjohnson.  I don't think I'm quite ready to tackle that first novel but I've got the itch.  I told myself that I won't start writing one until I've had at least a few short stories published but it won't hurt to be prepared.  Who knows, maybe I'll return again next year and take the novel workshop for real.

Off to bed for me.  I want to get up early and re-read all the short stories up for critique tomorrow.

Hey Adam - good to see you!
I spied your comment on lilacflower's LJ and then noticed you'd added me as a friend. Have put you on my friends list now too. :D

Hope you're having fun at the workshop.
Take care

I was so happy to find you on lilacflower's friend list. It's been forever since we've talked (and I feel super guilty about never writing back!). I promise to keep in touch this time.

Try and persuade Dena to come on over here, too! Hee hee. :D

I know you're busy right now with your writers' workshop, but just thought I'd flog 'mention' a site I've taken under my wing (previously administrated by she formerly known as Ti'annara at LEAF) called Elda Nórë.

Our main aim is to encourage all kinds of creativity -- we have mainly artists and writers at the moment -- and most members are of the friendly geek variety.

Our current message board is newish and membership is small (long story involving software bugs on our old forum ... ugggh), but we have a couple of science fiction writers who you might be interested in connecting with - one of whom is a fellow dwarf-lord!
And we all enjoy sharing and commenting on each other's work.
Anyway, I hope you can pop by when you have a chance ... ;)

It's great to meet you in person. See you tomorrow morning! (Or maybe later tonight if I get my reading done....)

Likewise! Ya'll might just be stuck with me every summer now :)

Cool - glad to hear you're enjoying it so far!
