A Quick Post...

Just wanted to send warm wishes to Faith Hochhalter. I attended the Project Book Babe charity event in Arizona to help raise money for her fight against breast cancer. She recently had major surgery as part of her treatment and, apparently, things went very well, which is wonderful news. If you're interested, you can check out her blog about her experiences HERE.

In other news, a few weeks ago I was a guest at the Storymakers convention in Utah. Scott Savage (the author of the terrific FARWORLD series) invited me to deliver the keynote. I had a moment of panic when I later realized that I was expected to talk for 45 minutes to an hour. It wasn't exactly like I had an hourlong speech laying around, but I put something together and ended up having a great time.

I also got to hang out with my friends Janette Rallison and James Dashner (both authors) and I met a lot of very nice folks. The next day, I taught a class on the basics of screenwriting, which forced me to come up with something to actually SAY about the basics of screenwriting, which caused me to interrogate my screenwriting buddy Steve Mazur -- he teaches classes on it at AFI and knows that kind of stuff.

Outside of that, thanks for all the kind comments on my previous post about Lulu. Much appreciated.

Take care...
