Heading back to the real world

August 30, 2010

I feel a little like Dorothy climbing in the balloon to go back to Kansas. The Writers of the Future workshop was amazing! Pro authors, people wanting my autograph, people buying my book, a free hotel, writers to talk to about writing, food, events, a massive awards show,- Hollywood Blvd…and tomorrow I have to wake up and teach. Not sure how I’m going to do that.

I prolonged my unreality just a little longer by upgrading my first flight to first class. In the end it only cost $50 extra, so I’d say it’s worth it. DirecTV, a couple free drinks (a something-and-Coke), a hot towel, good service…and tomorrow I have to wake up and teach. (Notice a pattern?)

I think a bigger piece of me has become a writer than when I left. I can’t wait to share some stories and revelations, but I’m typing all this on my Android phone.

My sardine-class fligh leaves in an hour. That will start the real world coming back to me. More posts soon.

Oh, and all you WotF 26 attendees lurking out there, say hi. I miss you all already.

    I’m home and I’m so tired. But I’m terribly eager at the same time.

    I already miss you guys and I hope we all keep in touch! I may have a blog up soon. Silly me not having one. Jordan pretty much drilled into me that when I got home I really need to set up a blog and Facebook page, so I’m hustling. :\

    The workshop’s over, but the work goes on. 🙂

    Hi Scott!

    Hope your first day back at work went well. Remember to make them do the trophy measurement thingy you talked about on the way to the airport!

    I think we’re all still in “afterglow.” I am running around trying to read everyone’s blogs on the subject. I think we could all fill a book talking about our experiences. And yes, missing everyone and L.A. already! Reality, boo!
