A story is a relationship between an author and the world. Stories tell us about the world in which we live—even those that take place on other planets. They help us understand “the other,” and engage in healthy dialogue about things that scare us. Stories help us to not be afraid of our world so, one day, when we reach out to another world we will also not be afraid. Prepare yourself for engaging writing exercises and thought-provoking discussions. Terradiddle: pretentious nonsense from earth.

PRLAAC 10th Anniversary Event
I was invited, as part of the Jackpine Writers Bloc, to read a short work of fiction at the Park Rapids Lakes Area Arts Council 10th Anniversary Event today. What a great time. The photo above is my friend Jerry Mevissen (introducing the Jackpine Writers Bloc to the assembled audience) and fellow Jackpine Writer, Marlys Guimaraes preparing for their portion of the evening.
There were dancers from the local dance academy, opera singers and singers from the local community theater, artists, a bluegrass band. It was a fun night and I'm glad to have been there.
