Get Your Kicks On Historic Route 66

I have returned from my week's absence, which was spent at the Starry Heaven writing workshop, which is an offshoot of writing workshop Blue Heaven. Had a fine time. Critiqued novels and had mine critiqued in turn. Received fine advice, considering my submission was essentially a practice novel (a proof of concept, if you will). My new question now is to decide on whether to try fixing it (which might also be useful)

But it wasn't all soulcrushing pain and artistic suffering. I also talked shop & gossip with my cabal of writers, drank beer, saw some sights, took a few very blurry pictures, and otherwise struggled for breath in the mountain air. In short, I had a blast. My extreme gratitude to you all for your help and your suggestions.

Reading: Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, by Jane Austen and Seth Grahame-Smith. I don't what to say about this really, but it's got a cover that Ian won't see for quite some time, if I have my way.
