It was a lovely time, hanging out with author friends. I got to meet and chat with Brett Lott. He said some great things about artistry and authenticity. I’ll post pictures when I get a chance.
I slept the first night, but not last night. Hopefully tonight, I’ll play catchup. I hit the ground running on Monday.
