Only about two more weeks until my first residency at Vermont College. I’m really excited! I’ve been listening to the lecture CDs again and also doing a lot of reading. Along with the workshop (I’m in Louise Hawes’ and Amanda Jenkins’ group), there are books listed from the lecture series that I need to be familiar with. I’ve also been watching a lot of movies, looking at screenplays by Horton Foote. Tonight it was The Trip to Bountiful (oddly enough, I somehow missed seeing this, or if I saw it, I don’t remember it. And thanks, Martha for mentioning it to me!) I loved it. Touching, funny, bittersweet. Geraldine Page was brilliant.
Here is a picture of my writing room in progress. It’s come a long way from the previous pictures. I can’t wait for it to be finished.
