So long, AWP!

It’s Saturday afternoon and AWP is still going strong in Boston. From what I heard, more than 12,000 writers descended on the city for the event. What a crowd, what chaos, what eagerness!

But now I’m back home — two days at the conference was my plan, and it’s time to get back to work and reality.

It will take a while to integrate all of the information received, friends met and re-met, and activity that is the crazy scene at AWP. In fact, it might take me a day or two just to absorb the reading/talk given by British writer Jeanette Winterson in front of a huge, crowded auditorium. Wow — was she dynamic, intelligent, funny, perceptive, and…well, amazing!

While I re-think it all, those of you who are still tromping around the Hynes Convention Center should enjoy the time that’s left and the sunshine that has finally returned to Boston! Have fun!
