Last weekend, it was perfect for my Judith Briles Speaking Unplugged event here in Denver, Colorado. We ended just in time before snow decided to coat the front range. Inside, we were toasty with ideas, how-tos, and customized strategies for each participant. Loved it! During the week, the second cold-eye on my new book came in; reached out for printing bids and now the push out really starts. This weekend is a “family cooking” AM on Saturday that we do every few months—then a “hunker down” for writing until the end of the month.
