Also, a shout-out! I will be teaching an advanced novel writing course through UCLA's Writers Program! (the link is on the left of the blog.) They are having a Cyber Open House and you can even live chat with me on Tuesday at 9 Eastern time. It's free, but you have to register .
I am ending my three weeks teaching writing to the Afghan women, which has been an incredible experience. I cannot thank these brave women enough--or novelist Masha Hamilton who spearheaded this project.
