Well my little story didn’t place in the writing contest, yet I still consider myself a winner. I entered that thing among professional writers and journalists and I felt/feel completely proud and confident in my story. I’ll find another contest to enter it in and will see how far it can go before someone just can’t resist. πŸ˜‰

Having a great time, good workshops today, tons of notes.


I even played hooky at lunch, sat at a sidewalk cafe listening to jazz and got drunk on the most enormous mimosa I’ve ever seen while missing the Keynote Speaker. Aw hell, he’s a sci-fi writer. What do I care know about Sci Fi anyway? πŸ˜‰


Noticing I’m not listening to music or turning on the TV but enjoying the silence of this space and the gorgeous views. My dinner date had to cancel and I couldn’t be happier.

Oh and I found out my cousin, who I knew lived in Seattle, actually lives in Edmonds and THREE BLOCKS FROM WHERE I’M STAYING! So much serendipity around me I can barely stand it.

He’s picking me up for breakfast tomorrow to map out the rest of my time here so we can get together. I haven’t seen him in years but have always adored this cousin.

Ok I have a sunset to watch so catch up with ya later. Or not. πŸ˜‰
