Barbara, I can't make the 31st but will try for Nov 21st. My dad died of cancer two weeks ago today. He wanted me to help him write his memoir. I miss him more than I can say but I don't miss taking him to chemo each week.

Is there any chance you will be sharing any of this workshop on this site?

Hi Barbara,
Thanks for sharing the link to the Huffington Post. It was like sitting in a writer's support group as I read it this morning.
