Deanna and I are melting in a coffee shop here in Old Town as we focus earnestly on our work for tomorrow. (Actually, she's working on her Author's Chair pieces and I am surfing around the blog and the E-anthology -- although I should be reading. I posted my poems on the e-anthology, by the way! So exciting!)
As the week comes to a close, I certainly feel proud to be part of the NWP. I find it inspiring, important, validating and motivating. AND MY DEMO'S DONE!! Yay! I earned a little surf time!
Some guy here just tried to pick us up (Deanna, really) by asking us if we liked Gershwin. Not too bad for a couple of married women loose in the big city! Deanna says he must like sweaty women. (It's really hot in here...or is it just our brains cranking out the overtime in fellowship mode?) Thanks for all the techno support, Bud. You are a model of patience and grace.
