I also came home with a renewed sense of spirit and friendship. I spent most of the weekend with my writer friend, Jess, who always inspires me. And makes me laugh. She's a gem, and I'm lucky to have her. Truly. I also got to spend a couple days with my close friend, Amelia, who drove all the way to Seattle to hang with me before I made the long journey home. She, too, is a treasure. Sweet, and calm, and kind...and crazy funny. We always have a ball together.
I will write more about ECWC 2016 in the coming days. Right now I am very jet lagged and my head is bursting with information that I need to put into action. I'll likely spend the next few days creating a work space in our Korean apartment (no easy feat...we've got six people stuffed in here!) and a work schedule to increase productivity. I'll keep you posted on how that goes. :)
In the meantime, here are a few pictures of my adventure....
|This is my author friend, Jess. She's fantastic. And hilarious. (Clearly.)|
|I was trying to be more professional in this shot. Snort.|
|Witch shoes for the win!|
|My outfit for my presentation was the bomb. My kids say that expression is "out." I say talk to the hand.|
|Downtown Seattle...deliciously rainy and cool and perfect.|
|I'm kind of bummed it's over!|
|Making my presentation. I was glad to sit down. My knees were knocking together the whole time!|
