A Whole Lotta HUMP

Hi friends!

There seems to be so much happening lately, I can barely keep up! I am so grateful that I was able to participate in the Alchemy for Writers 101 event last Sunday, held at a landmark, The Alchemist Theater in Bay View, Wisconsin. There were over 50 writers gathered, and my presentation was on (guess what?) Flash Fiction! I have to thank Mike Timms for all of his hard work in making this event come alive, as well as Sheila Julson for asking me to participate. And a nod to community spirit among writers! Alchemy for Writers | Project Empty Space
