The San Mateo County Fair closed yesterday after a 12-day run. There were a number of events for authors. Twice, I read my winning short story, The Accident. Other short story writers, memoirists and poets read their entries. There were some excellent entries. I particularly enjoyed the humorous poems of Ida Lewenstein—her poems are really fun and easy to follow.
On June 19, I was part of an authors’ panel on the topic of So You Want to Write a Novel. Other panelists were Jon Cory, Judith Marshall, and Teresa LeYung Ryan. Geri Spieler was the moderator. Our discussion focused on topics of interest to writers and would-be writers of fiction. (See my earlier post on advice for anyone who wants to write a novel.)
