Conference went well — for everyone, not just my little piece of it. Some sorting out of frustrations was done. My voice BARELY held up — I woke up this morning with a hacking cough and oncoming larynigitis, but I managed to get through until about mid-afternoon before one could no longer understand me.

I made the students WRITE in class (of course I did), and I was really pleased and impressed how they embraced the exercises and rolled with them under pressure.

I will have some photos and details on Momday — including the room I stayed in, which had more toile one place than I’ve ever seen in my life (and I don’t like toile).

On the radio, on the way home, was a news story about a family cleaning out a dead relative’s storage unit and finding the remains of what police think are the remains of a woman who went missing in 1983. Oh, the possibilities for fiction here . . .got my wheels going . . .

to bed now to get better.

More on Monday.

  1. Hope you’re better soon – sounds like you’re having a terrible time of it 😦

  2. Yikes. I hope you feel better soon!

  3. Hope you feel better soon. I’m glad you were able to stay for most of it. You missed one of my pieces being torn apart by the agents panel. Oh, how humbling, yet so useful all at the same time.

  4. Hope your’re feeling better by now. 😦

  5. Wow, what a great start for a fiction story!

    Glad the conference is over. And I’m with you – toile is best applied somewhere else. We should share horror stories on the places we’ve stayed. I was in a B&B once where the owner thought the more ruffles and pink, the better.

    Feel well soon.

  6. Feel better soon and get some rest.
