2nd Annual Oakdale Farms Writer's Retreat

We had a fun/productive weekend with ten authors/friends from Iowa. They were able to write by the pond or in the house, traipse around a pasture looking for a cow about to have a calf, and eat/talk/laugh in abundance.

Dori Butler described the weekend well in her blog:

I finished the (very) rough draft for my current work-in-progress (WIP). I need to research publishers now so I can work on the slant. All I'll say for now is that it is another nonfiction manuscript.

I haven't heard from the agent I queried about the biography I wrote. I'm not sure if the problem I had with a hacker blocked any reply from her or if she is just not interested in representing me. Since my phone number was on the query, I'm presuming the latter. Perhaps if I sell the manuscript on my own, she will be interested in representing me for future projects.

Psalm 145:8 "The Lord is gracious, and full of compassion; slow to anger, and of great mercy."
