How exciting, I just heard one of the cruise ships sound its horn. You don't often hear that sitting at your desk in an office tower. The wind must be blowing the right way today. Not sure that I would be wanting to head out on a cruise from Van today; its pouring rain and windy...Happy Autumn!
Went to a reading at the Vancouver International Writers & Readers Festival last night. It was on the Weight of History and very interesting. The 4 authors each read a passage from their respective novels then they spoke about how historical events/times played a role in their work. Learned some very interesting devices how to incorporate history into ones writing.
