I have a new project that I’m terribly excited about; I’ve got an SEO gig working with the directors of the Wildacres Writers Workshop, a place that calls to me despite my long absence. Wildacres is a spot that resonates with something deep in me; when I’m there, it’s like a little switch in my brain goes off, the one that says “Write!” And I do, and the work I produce there is invariably better than anything I write at home.
As some of you know, I was a pretty regular workshop attendee before Katrina; come to that, I was actually writing some fiction now & then before Katrina! Post-K, I haven’t been able to pay attention to the writer in me, but this new assignment has me feeling energized and re-connected to my old writing pals. I’m hopeful that next year I’ll be working on my novel again and be back on the magic mountain, tapping my creativity like I did in years past.
