No Camera, Will Travel
So here I am at the conference, at the beautiful Broadmoor Hotel. And what did I forget? My camera. I wanted pictures of the resort and people at the conference so I could post them here. Drat. So ticked at myself.
Tonight I spoke at the small group of people going through the Craftsman level of writing training through CWG. Tomorrow this part ends, and then the main conference with lots more people starts on Thursday.
I found a card from my wonderful hubby, Mark, in my suitcase when I got here--with a loving message from him. The card's a Snoopy card--my favorite kind. And it's a writer's card, even better. Snoopy's sitting on top of his doghouse. Outside of card:
"Once upon a time..."
Inside of card:
"...happily ever after.
To make a long story short."
Well, yeah. One of the many things I'm teaching at this conference is how to cut out unnecessary words:
Forgot camera. Kick self.
Mark should find his own card today as he gets dressed. His is a Happy Birthday card. Yup, today is his birthday. Give a shout out to Mark, would ya? (Remember the great guy who blogged here for me when I broke my ankle?) Behind every successful suspense author is a loving, supportive husband.
