Home from L.A. and Writers of the Future. I had a fantastic time.
Had dinner Monday night with Andy, Carol, Gay and Kelly. Learned a lot from K.D. and Tim, and so many other well-known writers. Strengthened old friendships, participated in the budding of new friendships. Righted a small wrong. Wrote a short story in twenty-four hours (and it wasn’t bad.).
Chatted Saturday night at the barbecue with Larry Niven, carried on a coherent conversation with the man, I think All I can say is “Wow!”. How many times in our lives do we get to talk to our heroes?
I missed the awards ceremony Sunday night (because of health problems) but everything else was swell. Thank you Joni and John and Marcus and (especially) Sophie. C’est si bon!
