What a weekend!


I have to admit, my life is so incredibly cool right now. Exhausting, but cool.


On Friday, I had the great pleasure of presenting a workshop to a SRO group of talented writers at the Houston Writer’s Guild fall conference. It was four hours of working on pitches, queries, first pages, and sharing secrets.


Well-known secrets, like where to find the best query information online. (I’ll be posting a page with links soon – this is a common question!) And less-well-known secrets like this amazing Save the Cat beat sheet for novelists. (You’re welcome, Houston writers!)


I loved listening to people read their first sentences, give their pitches, and wrestle with queries. We could have gone on for days – but the brownies I baked for the group (why, yes, I AM the best presenter in the universe haha) ran out, and we had to break for more chocolate.


Then, the very next day, I came home to lead THIS:



Yes, the very first flash mob (Zumba style) at Whole Foods. It was amazingly fun!


Tomorrow, I have a school visit at Brentwood Elementary.


I wonder if I can get them to flash mob with me, Gangnam Style?(JK)


What’s your favorite thing to do at a school visit, writer friends?And have any of you ever been in a flash mob? Or do you just stick to flash fiction?
