Florida Creativity Weekend + An Announcement


 I survived my first Florida Creativity Weekend!

 One of the best things about this conference was the diversity of the attendees...the youngest participant I spoke with is 13, the oldest was probably nearing 80. Everyone brought a different perspective and different energy to the weekend.

There weren't too many "artists" there, but a lot of teachers, business consultants, and non-profit developers.

 I say I survived it because the first day consisted of six or seven hours with of improvisational acting work. Basically it was non-stop exercises and Whose Line Is It Anyway games.

 I wasn't sure I could handle that since it's wayyyy outside my comfort zone. I'd actually made the deal with myself that if I tried it and hated it (or puked, fainted or died) I could leave during the lunch break.

 I didn't leave and I actually enjoyed myself. AND I learned some interesting things about myself along the way. Win-Win-Win!

 Talk about working your creative muscles. My brain was sore afterward!

 My favorite session on the second day, Nurturing Creativity, was led by Ismet Mamnoon. She's an amazing woman Check out her Ted talk HERE.

 And my favorite session on the last day was my own. ((wink wink)) I spoke about tips and tricks to silence your inner critic. So much fun and lots of interesting questions and comments.

 All in all, an interesting conference!


 CATNAPPED! Matchmaker Mystery 3 will be released on Monday, March 30th!

Cats have nine lives.
People don’t.

When cyber-sleuth Pete Hanlon goes to the gym, he has no idea he’ll reconnect with the red-hot woman he shared a single, memorable dance with at his brother’s wedding.

Coolly confident ex-cop Alyssa Montgomery agreed to help out a friend, but soon discovers she must deliver the ransom for a stolen cat. Worse, she needs Pete Hanlon’s help to save the kitty and solve a potentially deadly mystery.

Can the two work out their differences in time to figure out what’s really going on before something terrible happens?

Or will they miss out on their one chance at love?

Tell me Killer Friends: What did YOU do this weekend?

What a great time you had! And yay you for stepping outside your comfort zone. Not one but many times over the weekend. Congratulations on Catnapped! Sounds fabulous!

This weekend we bought a new bed for ourselves and one for our daughter. It was time. Probably past time.
