I registered for the Advanced Novel class at Sarah Lawrence this spring. I had a solid first draft of The Forge of the Heart completed when I got my Master's at City College, but never did anything else with the manuscript after that.
Yesterday, the first warm day of spring, I had the brilliant idea to go take a walk in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens with Margaret and Alyssa. Next Sunday is Sakura Matsuri, The Cherry Blossom Festival, and the garden will be massively crowded with families, cosplay folks, and photographers, both professional and selfies alike. All the people who show up to free events around town that I avoid because I don't do crowds.
You might well be wondering where I went, and why I haven't done a post on this blog in such a long while. Simple answer: I've been working on a novel and attempting to get it published.
Looks like we got a little carried away with our Ugly Sweater Contest!
I guess these photos are my payoff for taking so many of them!

I love camping. You may have noticed this if you've been reading my blog. And even though I've sold my motorhome (The Beast), I still want to go camping. Fortunately, I belong to an organization of like-minded women called Sisters on the Fly, and there are many different trips that the group organizes each year.
