I have the great honor of being the guest writer and smart-aleck at the Longridge Writers site. You can get a small taste of how obnoxiuos I am at conventions by checking he Q&A's at the Post a Note Section, here.
Please drop by, as there is a ton of stuff to be learned there. There are some great writers coming out of that program, and with Mary Rosenblum as a teacher you just can't go wrong.
I'll be there through the end of the week. Try your waitress, and be sure and tip the veal.
