Just a quick report about my reading at Henry's in Lawrence. It went great! Not only does it feel good to read in public again, but I got a lot of great responses. This included laughter that made me wait for it to subside (always a surprise, considering that this is pretty emotionally heavy stuff), lots of really positive feedback from people whose opinions I respect, and an hour-long discussion afterward that grew out of my reading. Yay! It seems I'm going in the right direction with this fictional memoir thing, so I'll keep at it.
Here's hoping y'all had a great weekend, too.
