Two things this morning:
#1 Posted a blog to Writer Unboxed this morning, Plotting for the Severely Right-Brained. Might be helpful for some of you who have a brain like mine.
#2 Reclaiming the Magic class starts on Monday. The published workshop is nearly full (one spot left), but there is plenty of room in [...]
Joan Didion, the celebrated writer, went to Columbia Elementary School for awhile. The old building, made of red sandstone (as well as I can recollect), not the modern version that occupies the lot these days.
