It's been nearly three months since my last post. I've really got to get myself organized. A lot happened over the summer. There. I'll blame it on the heat. It's September (still hot), but in September aren't we supposed to write about "What I Did During My Summer Vacation." The highlight of mine was the writer's retreat I attended at Alpine, Texas. Merrilyn Williams and I took a two-day road trip to get there. It's in the Big Bend area of Texas. We stayed in the dorm at Sul Ross University.

Merrilyn took a class on novel writing and I took one on revision. We were in class five hours a day for five days. With that much togetherness we bonded quickly and since we had to read our work out loud, we became acquainted with everyone else's work.

One of my classmates has a movie/television production company and works with a group in Hollywood. Long story short, they're in the process of reading my manuscript, Wild Justice, for a possible movie or television. Networking definitely pays off.
