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.
