Went to my first writer’s conference yesterday at Truckee Meadows Community College. I would like to give a shout out to Gordon Warnock for taking the time to listen to me complain about how no one will read my work (two words: query letter) and all the other presenters, especially David Kranes, whose Dances with Dialogue segment was fantastic. The nine ways that people try to control a conversation . . . awesome insight! I would also like to thank the crew for making me start a blog. Here it is, so you can all thank them too.
