We had a jam-packed fascinating day with author Peter Ferry last Tuesday when he came to Ashland.
About 15 people came to my house to drink coffee, eat pastries, and talk about writing.
There were more than 20 people at SOU who showed up for Peter Ferry’s afternoon workshop.
The next morning he was interviewed on the Jefferson Exchange.
The book was a lot of fun to read, though I didn’t finish it until after Pete left.
His next stop (he’s traveling with his wife): Mexico, to write, read, soak up the sun, and learn Spanish.
My next stop: The computer to write, research, and obsess about the feature I’m STILL writing about cloth diapers. After that on the agenda is: the new safety restrictions and how they apply to parents traveling with small children and tips on getting through security with small children.
I’m also doing the FLX query challenge this month, which was exactly the kick-in-the-pants I needed right now. If you are a writer and you’re not a member of FLX (FREELANCE SUCCESS), it’s an organization I highly recommend.
Plus, I update my MOTHERING OUTSIDE THE LINES blog three times a week, so click over if you’re in the mood to read about politics, elimination communication, family life, pregnancy, and juggling work and family with a not-yet-three-month-old baby.
