    This meeting was much more than I expected. I'm not social, by nature, but found those attending to be very welcoming and easy to talk to. I learned a few things as well.

    I just came back from a writers conference all fired up! I'm happy to share some things I learned (and re-learned) at the conference. At this meeting (the 20th), I'll discuss Story Engineering (based on Larry Brooks' book of the same title.)
