I made it to Denver and I’m having a great time. This will be a short update because I am falling over exhausted.

The trip was thankfully uneventful. I didn’t even forget my toothbrush. Gretchen gave me a ride to the shuttle and I finished up a few things on the two and a half hour drive thanks to Hut’s wireless internet. I had the privilege of sharing my plane with Christina Berry and Sherrie Ashcraft as well as two hundred others. In Denver we squeezed, and I really mean squeezed, into another shuttle.

The hotel is beautiful and huge. All of Philomath could fit in here with plenty of extra space for the Blodgett and Kings Valley people.

Today I spent listening to Donald Maas talk about Writing the Breakout Novel. Wow. I’ve learned so much that my brain feels nearly full. That man is bursting with great information.

Well I’m off to bed or I’ll miss my appointments in the morning.
