WRITING CONFERENCE REPOST

This week has gone to the  . . . well I am not insulting anyone or anything.

About an hour ago I started writing a wonderful post about the writing conference, but I lost it because I didn’t save during that hour. So this is my second, much shorter blog blurb about it.

With workshops, networking, and lots of inspiration, but in my last theatrical flourish at the end, it was deleted.  (No, of course I didn’t save it periodically during the hour)
