It's the People!

Words, lots of words, more than 5000 words, in fact.  That's how many words I wrote yesterday on the amazing write-in that was the Great Train Escape from Los Angeles to the Bay Area.

But many of the eleven hours were spent getting to know the other crazy nanowrimo novelists.  And once again, it was the people that made the experience.  They were smart, funny, motivated writers who enjoyed getting out of their solitary head space and talking with other writers.

There were writers of young adult fiction, fantasy, science fiction, mainstream fiction, historical fiction, romance, and I can't remember what else.  And what was more exciting, we had an author whose book is set to be launched in March with Scholastic!

We drank 6 bottles of wine, ate almost an entire package of Oreos and connected in meaningful ways.

We even had a fan waving to the train as we passed:

All in all, a great day!
