...I missed the Saskatchewan Writers' Guild fall conference. And when I say missed, I mean I missed out. However, thanks to Tracy and her blackberry, I was kind of there. Digitized. In snippets. It's been fun.
For me the highlight of the conference is the open mic. It's happening tonight. Gerry makes it new every year and his intros are always hilarious. I never fail to take the opportunity to read and test new work on the audience. Last year I read my pheasant sonnet, H manning the computer to show the accompanying video, which I'd initially posted on youtube.
I had planned to read an anecdotal piece at this year's open mic. Seriously. Since I'm not there, I thought I'd post it here.
And it's under three minutes! Gerry would've been proud.
