Maass' Writing Workshop

Spring on the Oregon Trail

And since it is spring, it is time for me to attend Donald Maass' High Tension Workshop. As I've mentioned before, workshops can be highly beneficial for improving the quality of writing. And as I may have mentioned before (or should have) Don's workshops are some of the best. After attending his week-long Intensive workshop, I noticed (and my writer's group did as well) a great improvement in the quality of my writing. If you'd like to know more about Donald Maass his website is Donald Maass Literary Agency. And I just noticed he has a free download of his excellent book The Career Novelist.

Which is a roundabout way of saying I won't be posting again until after the conference--earliest next mid-week. See you then.

Can't wait to hear about the workshop! I'm going to grab that download and check out the site.

Take care!

Woo hoo! I'm down here in Texas with Conda and Maass' workshop is incredible. I know we'll hear more when Conda returns to Boise.
Listen to her.

Thanks for the comments, Muse, Swu and Kathy--I'm back and recovering from the intensive days. Will post soon.

It was better than my expectations, which were sky-high.
