Missing in Action!

Hey all!

I just wanted to give everyone a head's up that my regular blogging schedule will resume next week when I return from Tinker Mountain Writing Workshop at Hollins University. This is my third day here, and I couldn't be happier.
The entire campus.

The campus is nestled in the Blue Ridge mountains in Roanoke, VA. The smell of sweet magnolia trees floats in the air and I'm surrounded by wonderful Southern company. The Tinker dorms house the majority of us, bringing me back to my days at Penn State. Love it!

I begin my mornings on the big Southern porch of the Main Bldg. in a rocking chair, reading. If I wasn't brought up better, I would totally throw one of the rocking chairs in my trunk on the way out of here on Saturday. Oh well.

The temperature is a perfect, breezy 80 degrees. I spend my days reading, critiquing and talking craft. The writing community is small and intimate, giving me the opportunity to know everyone. My memoir workshop is made up of the most interesting women and a gentle and insightful instructor, Jim McKean. Hopefully, towards the end of the week I will get some writing done once my down time starts to free up.

Pictures will be posted later this week on my Facebook Writer Page @Laura M. Campbell. Enjoy the rest of the week!

You're so lucky you got to go to the Tinker Mountain Writing Workshop. I live in Roanoke, so it's right next door too. My friend and fellow writer Betsy Ashton is there, so you might come across her. She's our Valley Writers president. I look forward to hearing how you enjoyed it. :)
