Taos Summer Writers Conference

I have so much writing and reading I could be doing, but I thought I’d try to capture some of this experience while it’s still fresh. Here’s the schedule of events. And the conference blog.

This is my typical day thus far:

5:45 a.m.
Wake up to the sound of birds outside my nest of a room (I’m staying in the Georgia O’Keefe room–used to be her studio–at the Sagebrush Inn), which is the only room on the third floor. Make coffee and read until breakfast.

6:30 a.m.
Eat my oatmeal in the dining room, where the hotel offers a full complimentary breakfast.

7:00 a.m.
Practice yoga on the courtyard grass with Laura and a few other yogis brave enough to get their feet wet and mats dirty.

8:15 a.m.
Shower and dress.

9:00 a.m.
Attend the “Beginning Memoir” workshop in Chamisa I of the Sagebrush Conference Center with BK Loren (instructor) and 11 other groovy folks from all over the US and Canada.

12:30 p.m.
Eat lunch on the patio with fellow conference participants.

1:00 p.m.
Attend the daily roundtable (today it was Wally Lamb).

2:00 p.m.

3:00 p.m.
Walk or drive for coffee. Monday: Taos Java; Tuesday: Koko Coffee; Wednesday: Wired? Cyber Cafe; Thursday: Purple Sage; Friday: The Coffee Spot (formerly The Bean).

4:00 p.m.
Write whatever I need to write for tomorrow’s workshop. (I’ll post more on this later.)

5:30 p.m.
Attend faculty readings.

7:00 p.m.
Adjourn to my room for a light supper of yogurt, muesli, and almonds. Drink tea, watch TV, and check email, Facebook, Twitter, etc.

9:00 p.m.
Take a hot bath.

10:00 p.m.
Read until sleep.
