The past few days have been such a joy for me!
On Friday I had the opportunity to spend the day with third graders at a local school. We read several Dr. Seuss books and shared our love of reading, writing, and illustrating. The students were so well behaved, thoughtful, and had some great questions about becoming authors and illustrators. I couldn't imagine a better way to spend a school day.
On Saturday, I got to spend some time with a great writer, and even better friends. BJ Bourq spoke with one of my writers groups about westerns, mysteries, thrillers, and crime. His 25 plus years of experience in the field have given him a level of expertise that shines through in his writing. His sense of humor, and commanding demeanor make him an excellent speaker that I would recommend to any group. If you'd like to learn more, check out his website bjbourg.com
Any of my friends who've been paying attention, or read my blog last week, know I've been having a rough time lately. These two days of enjoying the craft with others has been a more than welcome respite. Thank you to everyone who continues to share this writing journey with me.
I hope you all have a great week!
