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.
