Breeze Inn Update

It doesn’t feel like I accomplished much at the Breeze Inn last week. Got some curtains hung, moved some furniture around. I wanted to hang pictures, but then I was seized up with fear. What if I ruined a wall? What if my picture was off-center? (I am notorious about never being able to center or balance anything). So I puttered around, swept the floor, and decided to let the house tell me what it wants. Geez. It’s just a house. They’re just pictures. Some paint by numbers and silly amateur paintings of seaside scenes. Maybe I’ll feel more confident next week, when Mr. Mary Kay arrives with his level and tape measure. In the meantime, I’ve moved the show up to North Carolina, where I’ll spend the week on a writer’s retreat with my writer buddies Katy Munger, Sarah Shaber, Margaret Maron, Diane Chamberlain and Bren Witchger. Hoping for inspiration, or at least some quality time writing and exchanging publishing gossip.

  1. Mary Kay,
    I found your blog (and books!) via your shopping trip with Eddie Ross. So far I’ve finished reading Hissy Fit and Savannah Blues, and have started Savannah Breeze. Just wanted to say hello and tell you how much I’ve enjoyed the books. I look forward to reading the rest!

    P.S. I’m slightly awestruck that you’re hanging out with Margaret Maron and Katy Munger. I’ll definitely be checking out the other writers in your retreat group.
