Quick Note from Atlanta

Using my friend's computer to send a quick update.
Flight to Atlanta was fast and fun...chatted with writer friends I bumped into along the way.
Spoke to the Logos members' retreat yesterday morning and felt like I was "among my tribe." Wonderful, inspirational men and women serving both the Christian community and the world by their hard work and sacrifice to provide books by Christian authors. I shared how much certain books have meant to me in my Christian growth over the years, and how they are my heroes for the work they do.
Spent all day yesterday in a writer's workshop led by Donald Maas (Writing the Breakout Novel). Delicious, challenging, inspirational. Provided AWESOME and specific tools to help me improve and grow as a writer. What a blessing!
And of course scattered in has been wonderful conversations with other writers.
What a comfort to hear stories of their adventures and know that I'm not alone.
Off to another day of writer retreat events....
Ate a Georgia peach with my supper last night. Traveling is fun!
Thanks to all who are praying!
