Taos. New Mexico. Land of Enchantment

I’m here in Taos, NM to attend the Summer Writers Conference hosted by University of New Mexico. I’ll get my whole manuscript workshopped, but not until Thursday!! Saving the best or the worst for last?

I’m already learning tons, can’t wait to apply it to my work and begin the process of revision.

Weather is nice. but dry dry dry. I hope the life is not evaporating out of me!! and I’m drinking so much water that I feel like I am spending most of my time in the bathroom… yeah… too much information 🙂
