Summer Workshop in P-Town With Pam Houston
Exciting news. I found out this week that I got the very last available spot for Pam Houston’s Advanced Fiction Workshop at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown. A week of talking about structure, narrative tension, voice, point of view, dialogue, beginnings and endings. I’m psyched. I’ll let you know how it goes.
And wouldn’t you know it? Just after I heard about nabbing the last spot for the workshop, I was introduced to to Cynthia Martin’s Catching Days blog in which she interviews various writers and asks them how they spend their day. Here is how Pam Houston spends her day.
Since I’m going to be taking a class with Houston, I’m inspired to read her collections. I’ve already read Cowboys Are My Weakness, but now I need to pick up Waltzing the Cat and Sight Hound. Have you read them?
BTW, here’s how I spend mine day: wake, walk the dog, work, work out, work some more, walk the dog again, write, read a little, sleep. Somewhere in there I eat and write this blog. How do you spend your day?
