After some intense days at a Short Story Workshop in Oregon. I just worked on a column about it, and flirted with going over my word limit because it is almost impossible to describe it in 600-700 words.
Will give details another time - right now it's late for me and I'm still a little sleep deprived (also had my allergies flare up while in Oregon and working to settle them down). Short version - it was an awesome experience and I wish I had gone to one sooner.
More later -
