Some exciting developments here at the Converse College low-res MFA residency:
--I got carded at a bar last night. Even if it's a pity carding, or an enforced carding, I will take it! Bless you, Delaney's! I forgive you for leaving me smelling like an ashtray.
--I learned about cornbread salad, which showed up at lunch, and is a marvelous melding of sour cream, shredded cheese, cornbread crumbs, tomatoes, pinto beans, green onions, and BACON. Seconds, yes, and right now I'm wishing I had thirds.
--My craft lecture this morning on what makes an effective beginning went well, especially considering that it was Sunday morning, following a Saturday night that went rather late (see above). So far, I believe I've managed to mention The Great Gatsby at least once a day.
