Just returned from a wonderful evening sponsored by the Writers Guild of Alberta for Red Deer writers.  It was an evening of presentations, laughs, lots of wine and lots of good conversation.  I am now officially motivated to continue with my second manuscript and hopefully to find a group of people willing to read my stuff.  Still happy to say Bend Like the Willow continues to sell and am about to do a presentation to a local book club and enjoy a few hours with some new friends and readers.  Have learned a lot on this writing journey….hope to learn more.
