Laws of attraction

Lovely evening the other night with other writer-types, who seem to find each other even in the middle of nowhere, like iron shavings attracted to a central creative magnet. The kind of gathering powered by human interaction rather than electricity, entertainment without being bombarded by entertainment. Technology allowed guests to showcase their talents and a faraway friend to attend. But the focal point was people and their imaginations. I'd had a long week so I left early, but would have liked to stick around for more.

Feathers and feet

Got a request for partial manuscript from one of the few literary agencies that doesn't accept submissions via e-mail. Unusual enough now that getting the letter was a tiny bit charming, like delivery by owl. Let's hope our feathered friend delivers more good news.

Also, ran a 5K last weekend...
