These are some of the things C. Flynt has been up to, some of our personal lives, some reviews of things we've read, some stuff we've learned.

The blogs are organized by date.

Comments will appear when we've had time to check them. Apology for the inconvenience, but it's a way to keep phishers and spammers off the page.

This was the 31'st Rally of Writer's conference in Lansing, and the second we attended.

This event is worth the time and then some. There are 16 talks spread over four sessions ranging from craft talks like sentence construction and world building to business talks like how to pitch stories and promote your book.

The attendees range from award winners like Karen Dionne and Lori Nelson Spielman to folks who intend to write something Real Soon Now. Most have one or two pieces that they are either self-pubbing, or are shopping around.

There's plenty of time between sessions for schmoozing, and an after-session dinner. With freezing rain on the way, we opted out of the evening dinner.
