Words and Cacao

Ron Carlson spoke at UCI's University Club Forum today. His talk centered on the craft of short fiction, and listening to it I felt like I was back at Squaw Valley, scribbling illegible notes and thinking "" Writing is about being okay being in the dark...attention is required...don't hurry...doubt is your constant companion. Thanks to Lisa Alvarez for posting info about the talk on her blog.

This evening, Bryan and I learned to make truffles at the Chuao factory. We both agree that what Bryan's CV needs is Master Chocolatier. And what we both need, of course, are homemade truffles.
