Italy Conference Imminent—Blog Will Slow ...

This is my last workday before leaving for the International Women's Fiction Festival in Matera, Italy. I'll be gone about 10 days, and I'm not sure how much time I'll get on the computer over there. Sorry if the blog goes quiet for a while. I bought an electrical outlet converter, but evidently it can't handle "Class 1" electronics such as, oh say, a laptop. Sigh.

This is my last workday before leaving for the International Women's Fiction Festivalin Matera, Italy. I'll be gone about 10 days, and I'm not sure how much time I'll get on the computer over there. Sorry if the blog goes quiet for a while. I bought an electrical outlet converter, but evidently it can't handle "Class 1" electronics such as, oh say, a laptop. Sigh. The conference looks to be a lot of fun and there will be a sizable international contingent of editors and writers. I hope to get at least one picture of me on a panel wearing those big UN headphones.

Until we talk again!
