2012-05-25T11:56:07-06:00May 16th, 2012|Pikes Peak Writers|

This is a horribly late update on my experience at PPWC 2012. I'm finally caught up on most of my projects that arrived during and post conference, so now I can drop some notes on what I thought of the various sessions I attended. Thursday I paid for the "add [...]

Who's the handsome fella? No. Not the one on the left. That's me. I'm far from handsome. I'm talking about the guy on the right. Well, it's Donald Maass. If you're not sure who he is, then do some Googling. You'll probably find out that he's one of [...]
