I’m in Detroit! (Or if you’re reading this in the morning, I’m on my way.) I’m teaching a writing workshop (12 Easy Steps to Breaking In) for Greater Detroit Romance Writers. I’m also teaching a couple of online classes coming up–Deconstructing Emotion (another writing workshop) and Color Me Blogging. I mention the online classes in particular in case any of you who are bloggers are interested in signing up for the blogging class, which is suitable for writers and non-writers alike. If you want to hear me go on and on about my thoughts, tips, and techniques regarding the art of blogging, you can sign up here. The workshop is being offered through a romance writers group, but non-members can take classes for a small extra fee. (If you’ve never taken an online class, the lessons are conducted via email.)
I rarely teach on-location classes anymore because I can’t stand plane trips, and also because nowadays it’s very difficult for me to go anywhere at all as it means so many arrangements for animals, kids, etc, in my absence. This workshop in Detroit was arranged over a year ago, before we even moved to the farm. Before I knew how much I would miss Clover. And Coco. And Annabelle.
And even Mean Rooster.
It’s a quick trip. Two plane flights there, one workshop, one night at a hotel, two plane flights back. I shan’t even have time to paint the town red. And you know I’d do that.
Us farmgirls are wild when we get out of the holler.
Maybe I can find time to paint it a little pink. Maybe a nice magenta……
