While M and J hit the European trail, ML came and visited the Southern CA sights!
While LA doesn’t hold a candle to Vienna or Paris, it was a great location to meet ML off her flight. My novel intensive course took place in an LAX airport hotel conference room. Her plane was scheduled to land minutes before my class wound down. She just ubered right over. I was blown away by packed yet simple information garnered by generous, passionate writing teachers. And then, I was re-energized seeing my BFF even if it was a full day of learning and note-taking.
