Branson for the week-end. I left with two writer friends on Friday to join the Ozarks Writers League for open-mic at Boxcar Willie's Motel where we spent the night. Saturday, we attended the all day workshops at the College of the Ozarks. Friday night and Sat at breakfast we talked writing and brainstormed. Saturday morning I got up at five to work on an upcoming speaking engagement. I had a great time. I have so much work to do preparing for different things going on with the two writers groups I founded and I am the president for both. I am hoping in a year or two I'll be able to turn it over to new presidents. When I moved here January 1998, there was nothing, so I started the Twin Lakes Writers and we are continuing to grow.
