So sorry for the radio silence but I’m at the Sirenland Writer’s Conference.
I was here for 2 1/2 days before I had a second to log in to the internet, which is the longest I’ve been offline in over a year. And that was just to check email.
I mean, breakfasts, workshops, hikes up the mountain and lingering over lunch and the view. Evening readings.
I’m in Ron Carlson’s workshop. Dani Shapiro is here. Also Jim Shepard, Hannah Tinti, Nam Le and Bruce Machart. And writers, writers everywhere.
And there’s the view.
So much to show and tell. More very soon.
What a dream.
What an absolute dream.
Enjoy it all.
You know I’m living vicariously through you, right? Enjoy. Enjoy.
Beautiful. Enjoy it, every single moment.
Sounds wonderful. Wish I were with you. Can’t wait to read all about it.
It looks and sounds amazing – enjoy!
Like Linda, I am living vicariously through you, too! Have a wonderful time. I can’t wait to read about your adventure and what you learn.
Italy is my most favorite-est place in the world. I hope you take lots of pictures to share.
Okay, I’m completely jealous. Can I come with you next year?
My goodness, what a view! And, to be surrounded by writers…I can’t wait to hear more!
Sarah, Linda, Terresa, Darrelyn, Sarah Laurence, Teresa, Tricia, Kim, and Christi—thank you ALL for your wishes and comments. More coming later in the month on the more writerly aspects of the trip.
As you know by the tardiness of my reply, I kept choosing the view over the computer!
Italy! Sounds like a dream until I reach the later post where you are sick. I hope you still had some time to enjoy it and that you learned a lot.
Cristina, it was wonderful until the last 24 hours. Got a wonderful new perspective on writing being in Ron Carlson’s workshop.
