Remember those people I mentioned the other day?

One of them is our new buddy and Chautauqua Inn-mate (not inmate!) Nora Macfarlane, who deftly summarized our week on her blog. Last Monday morning at breakfast, we were told to write down the names of all the books the faculty mentioned in their presentations. I did, but haven't yet typed them up into a list to work from. Nora has.

I spent much of the day yesterday readjusting to the real world. You know, the one where there is no breakfast buffet. So sad. But there is air conditioning, and for that I am grateful.

This morning was all about critiques for tomorrow night's Slushbusters meeting. I already see where the things I learned at Chautauqua are coming up. I just hope my fellow Slushies will take my notes well, because I have far more of them than usual! I feel all editor-y. Now I want to go and work on my own book!

Good luck readjusting! I'll have to check out Nora's post. :)

Ha ha! I'm spoiled, I know, but I'll take air conditioning over a breakfast buffet any day!

I can type fast, but I'm sure I missed many of the book examples that were mentioned. If you have a supplement list, I'd love to see it. Thanks for the shout-out.

Any time, Nora! I'll email you my notes when I get them typed up. I'm working some extra hours this week at the library, so it may be a while.
