Receiving an invitation to be a panelist at ArmadilloCon 40 reminds me that I haven't been good about updating my blog. I hosted WORDfest this year on March 24 and presented on "Controlling Runaway Ideas and Competing Projects." Briefly in April, I stayed at The Writers' Colony in Eureka Springs where I learned the value of a writers' retreat: setting aside solid time when I "should be writing" instead of "should be doing something else." Having a firm purpose makes a difference in productivity! As for ArmadilloCon 40, I turned it down this year because I already have other plans for that weekend.

I will be hosting WORDfest on April 8th. I'll be giving the welcome speech and closing remarks, working the TCC English Department table and the NE Arlington Writers' Critique Group table, and moderating the "Identify Your Genre" breakout session from 2:30PM - 3:15PM. Very excited!
