And that's why this blog post will be very short, followed by several other short posts (and not always posted in the morning). I'm visiting family in Illinois until next Tuesday. On Friday I'll speak to a creative writing class at my old high school, but that's the only writing-related activity I have planned for Illinois. Then I'll drive to Indiana and spend the night with more family.
A week from today I'll attend the Sisters in Crime Writing Workshop in Indianapolis, followed by the mystery convention Bouchercon where I have one assignment: participate in the panel on geezer lit.
I hope to do some quality blogging from the convention. I'll keep my eyes and ears open for fun things to write about so you won't be bored.
