What day is today?

Yesterday, whatever day that was, I went to graduate lectures, graduate readings, workshop, and I met with Sarah Ellis and the rest of her group of students (there are 5 of us).  I also read one of my picture book manuscripts (minus the pictures) to the rest of the newbies.  We each read a piece of work for 3 minutes or less.  I am part of an amazingly talented group of writers.  I am honored to be a member of this class-the Working Titles.  

What did I learn today?  I learned about the controlling belief of characters.  I will explain more about this when I have more time.  I've learned so much over the last week that my brain feels full.

Today's agenda?  Lecture by Rita Williams-Garcia, graduate lectures and readings, meet with Sarah Ellis privately to talk about what, exactly, I will be working on this semester.  It's an early night tonight, and I will be hitting the sack as soon as I can.

Tomorrow? I forget.  Lack of sleep will do that to a person.

Oh you sound so tired and over loaded. But as soon as you are down and you begin to settle back in your real home, little things here and thre will start bubbling its way to the surface.

I just finally read the comic on your blog. LOL! It's hilarious. And actually so true with kid's artwork (and I guess manuscripts, too!). Thanks for putting a smile on my face.

So only a couple days left? You're are going to be so invigorated when you get home!

Oh, how those days start to run together. So much to take in.

One thing that wore me out the most was talking to so many people day after day. I think I talked to more people in one day than I did in a week at home, working at my day job.

But the real work is yet to come--when you get home and have to start producing those 40-page packets.

Have a great last few days!
