I loved seeing my son at his group home and seeing old friends. I really loved giving my all day Book in a Week workshop! There were great questions and I had new material to share so it was a chance to play in a new way with possibilities.
On the way home (and flying to New Jersey) I brainstormed story ideas. The most promising one has already begun to morph significantly into a very different type of book than I first thought. But that's part of the fun of being a writer--to discover unexpected directions our stories might take.
