AWP, here I come. I think.

I lived in Minneapolis for years, but this weather still freaks me out.  Ice in Dallas (where I’ll be flying through).  What are the chances?

This blog may go a little quiet for a few days, but I’ll be sure to give a full report about AWP in Washington D.C. I’ve got my agenda all lined up, with at least 2 seminars I want to attend every hour — so I’m wearing comfortable shoes.   Wish me luck.

I’m taking good books (my huge stack of books!) to read along the way.  And I have the good fortune of seeing old friends, so all is well in the world.

Are you reading anything you’re excited about?  I’m only semi-excited about my stack of 12 ….

As a side note, Rex went to the Recycle Books store today and came home with First Editions of Hemingway’s FOR WHOM THE BELL TOLLS and Jean Auel’s CLAN OF THE CAVE BEAR — so it’s Oh Happy Day here in Carter Library.

    Those were cool finds by Rex! I’m really excited about reading Sunset Park by Paul Auster. I picked it up and got sucked right in.

    Safe trip and have fun. And stay warm.

    My writing tutor on the MA over here is going I think. Six degrees of separation.
    Enjoy. I’m reading FFTT revised and looking for a novel to read – how was Forever Amber?

    Safe travels.
    There are so many I’m excited about sitting on the shelf. The Book Thief, the new David Sedaris and AL Kennedy, I’m waiting on Food and Loathing from the library…I’m having such trouble lately with balance though. I have such limited time, so it’s either read or write, not both. Life is just too damned short not to do both.

    Thanks all. I made it to AWP and am finding my way through the throngs of writers. Wow. I don’t have my laptop, so I can’t really blog about the whole thing until I get back home, but for now, it’s great. And not even cold outside. 🙂
