    Very good. Emma was--as always--very outgoing and willing to share her stories about her writing. She gave us background and insight and talked about her own "challenges" with writing. Nice to know I share something with as talented a writer as Emma.

    Unfortunately, it looks like I'm going to be about 20 minutes late, so be aware that I'm unlikely to be just about to arrive when you guys start.
