A Writer’s Notebook: a reading

I had thought to sneak in a little writing this week during the PCA/ACA conference I’m attending, and believe me, I’ve written PLENTY, but very, very little of it has been creative in the strictest sense. It’s mostly conference notes. So I don’t have a Writer’s Notebook today.

I did, however, read a piece of my own fiction at the conference today, and the reading went tremendously well. The other two panelists I read with, Mark Busby and Grace Epstein, were fantastic, and earlier today I had the great privilege of hearing Robert Flynn read fiction. I took a terrific summer workshop with Bob Flynn back in 2000 at West Texas A&M University, and I’m still using a lot of what he taught me; hearing him read fiction today was a terrific treat.

Next week: back to the writing!
