Another great group of people showed up at Barnes & Noble in Westport today, and we had a good time, encouraging each other, and generally making the writing happen. Several people had things published, some rather unexpectedly. Kathryn Mayer had a piece she’d forgotten about published here, and if you have something to brag about, add it to the comments, so people can find it!

Ten picks for the Sunshine Award:
Sandi Kahn Shelton: Author, wife, mother and all round ray of sunshine. If that sounds as though she’s too good to be true, she’s not. She’s fun.
Madame Bovary’s Daughter Linda Urbach writes wittily about her creation, throwing in a few trenchant comments on the current social scene for good measure. In franglais, naturellement.
