I had the best time speaking at the High Serenity Ranch Writer’s Retreat in Sprague River, OR on Saturday, Oct. 29. Sponsored by Klamath Basin Writers, this event brought writers of all interests together in a lovely setting to write, share, and get inspired.

I ate beautiful food, talked with wonderful people about writing and creativity and life, wrote short pieces in response to fun prompts, and even put together a plan for my writing goals. And I got to share my experience on this writing road – from dealing with rejections, figuring out next steps, and finding the the very best friends and colleagues to share the journey with.

I’m so happy they asked me to present and gave me the chance to meet so many wonderful writers. Thanks to everyone who attended – and extra love to Laura, Perri, and Jo for putting the retreat together and letting me tag along.
