    I am unable to attend the workshop tomorrow. I’m battling the flu and as of today it seems to be winning. I’m sad and disappointed, but I look forward to seeing all of you next month.

      I was unaware that you were ill until Cat told me. I kept looking towards the front door and worrying about where you were. It wasn't until after the group was over that I mentioned my concerns to Cat and then she told me she had seen your notice on here. Unfortunately I could not get into this site no matter what I did. I think the only reason I am on here today is because Kate sent me a "good to see you" note. I logged in through that. Again, hope all is well. The group ran almost to seven o'clock. It was great but I am going to have to take my C-phone into the meetings in the future so I can text Jan if we run over.

    Next month, for those who are working on their query letters, bring a copy of your rough draft to the workshop. We will take a few minutes to discuss what needs to be included in your professionally written letter to a literary agent. --Kate Sullivan

    post script - Great to see everyone working so hard on your projects.

    I'm sorry to cancel; it is just that I am leaving town in a couple days and am not very far into my "to-do" list for the trip. Love this class and will be there in November.
