SIWC Conference Begins Today

Diana Gabaldon at SIWC 2009

Packed and ready for the Surrey International Writer’s Conference.  Except for one last minute detail.  SIWC offers a Blue Pencil session. A well known author reads your first three manuscript pages and together you discuss it.  I signed up with Diana Gabaldon, the author of the Outlander series.   I’m scrambling with a quick revision. See you all after the conference.

      Glad you stopped by. Sorry not to meet you this time around at the Surrey conference, but I’ll be on the lookout for your friends. I attended two master classes this afternoon and evening, and am now waiting at home for my daughter to arrive from Texas.

      My husband deserves knighthood, as he drove 100 miles to SeaTac to pick her up when her flight arrived late, causing her to miss the airporter bus. We’ll stay in the hotel to attend the next three days, but probably head in different directions to workshops.
