Hello Friends and Welcome!

It takes a cyber village - thankya Heather for the link to the Slow Group's discussions page:

I get an error page that says "Yikes". Cute. Ugh. Will take up this problem tomorrow as la familia clamors for dinner.

Hi - I'm so slow I'm still up at midnight. Off to bed. Take a look at my blog post from tonight. Ellen do you know how to get that front and center to everyone? Anyone else. It's important.

Not sure if it's me or the software. I can't set the discussions to sort by "Newest Discussion" so we have to do this manually when looking for a new posting.

Hi Slow Group. If you ate like me yesterday, then you are probably moving considerably slower today. I rewrote Talon's firs letter to Aunt T and wanted to see what you guys think since there seemed to be a general consensus on the 'voice' of it. I look forward to your comments.

Hi Heather and Tracy -

I just wanted to say how much I've gotten from reading both of your work. It's an honor and a privilege. Thank you so much! More postings please! It's a very busy couple of weeks for me and I might not get back right away but I'd love to read more!

I feel the same way, Andie. I've wanted to get involved with the NV SCBWI stuff for so long, and it's amazing to find a way that fits into my hectic world.

Hi there friends! Just getting down to reading your comments. All so very helpful. Thanks again. More to come soon and I look forward to reading more of your stuff as well in the next couple of days before I head to the coast for the Big Sur Children's Writing Workshop. I'm really looking forward to it.

Slow! I'm into slow. Hi everyone! Tracy--or anyone, for that matter, are you going to Big Sur in March? I'll be there. I was on the faculty of the first Big Sur in the Rockies in October, and Andrea invited me out to California. I'm psyched.

Wow, we just did (meaning Tracy and I) the December Big Sur/Monterey conference. It was great.
