A banner day, indeed, BFoundAPen! :-)

My fiction writing actually took off when I joined a writing workshop a whole lotta years ago. I don’t think I ever told you that.

The workshop got me accustomed to daily production and to critical feedback. I learned to value people’s observations of my work while also carefully evaluating and deciding where I was going with my own artistic vision.

Of course, you’re way further along than I was when I joined that group. I bet you get an amazing amount out of yours!

And those puppies. :-)


Which one will you choose? Ginger? Or does your gran have a lock on that one? ;-)

Btw, in the last few months before Lenny died, he was on regular dialysis, so I have a pretty good idea what you had to go through.

No fun.

But just look at you now!
