Today I’m an exhausted but happy writer.  Last week I had the pleasure of being involved with two Dean & Kris workshops on the Oregon coast.  The atmosphere, learning and people were fantastic.

The week was nothing short of mind-blowing and I was honored to be a part of that group for a week of dedicated learning.  And when I say dedicated, I mean the long days and no-sleep-nights kind of dedicated.  Besides all the activities for the workshop, I managed to hit my goals on writing for the week during the rare downtimes we had.  I can’t wait to go back again.

In other writing related news, I made the first cut in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Contest in the YA fiction category.  Four thousand manuscripts were eliminated from the field of five thousand and the next cut will occur on March 22nd.  Wish me luck.
