looking up

Things have been hard around here, which you've probably gathered from my last few posts. It's amazing how easy it is not to think about money when you have it, and how it's all you can think about when you don't have it. Ah.

But things are looking up. I hope. I'll keep you posted on that front when I know anything for sure. (Sorry to be so vague.)

For now, I'm trying to stay focused on the classes I'll be teaching this winter and spring, and on my revision, which is moving along and with which I'm actually quite happy.

And I want to let you know about a two-hour workshop I'll be teaching on November 14th. I'd be grateful if you'd pass the word. Here are the details:

Memoir for Mothers

In this workshop, you’ll learn how to capture your funny and heartbreaking motherhood anecdotes on paper and bring them to life with sensory details and strong characters. In addition to in-class writing, we will spend time discussing how to fit writing into your busy lives. You will leave the workshop with a page of exercises to try at home.

When: November 14 – 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Where: Mother’s Day Inc., 521 Lake Drive, Chanhassen, MN

Cost: $32

I wish that I lived closer to take some of your classes! Hope pots of gold are waiting for you soon!

Ditto to what Elizabeth said. The workshop sounds fabulous.

I always enjoy hearing from you, and about your book. Let us know what else is "looking up" when you can. Cheers, Louise

Hello! My comment comes to you through the Mother's Day newsletter. What a great place. I'm a Minnesota blogger (and writer) too. Cool sites! Why do we need money? We should live in society where everyone barters.
