Monday Mentionables: Back from Vacation with a Craving to Learn

Yes, I took an entire week off - hubby and I spent time in the Outer Banks, NC, with a group of friends. (The picture is of sunset over the dunes at Kitty Hawk, home of the famous first flight of the Wright Bros.) We had perfect weather and relaxation the whole time. Just what I needed! Though I didn't do any writing, I did do some reading and some thinking, both about future and current projects. One of my goals in the next 6 months is to take a writing workshop. Yes, I'm giving two this week as part of the Savvy Authors Summer Symposium. But we never stop learning, right? And I'm feeling like I need a jump start to get some of my creative juices flowing again.

Any recommendations? Alternately, any good writing books/workbooks/resources you've found helpful?

I"m looking forward to reading a writing book I just picked up called The Woman in the Story - Writing Memorable Female Characters by Helen Jacey.

Let me know if you do a workshop.
