News from the 2018 Debs:

Cass Morris has spent the past three days fighting off a vicious head cold because she is determined to be well and at full strength in time for the Sirens Conference later this week. During this past week, she’s also sent a draft to her editor and applied to two graduate schools, so she feels she’s rather earned a weekend of sitting on her couch in her PJs and binging costume dramas until her nose stops running.


Lara Lillibridge vacuumed most (not all) of the house was so proud that she posted about it on social media. She also wrote a chapter about cooking a turkey that probably referenced carcass too much for the general reader. She learned the word reduplicative as well.


Kimmery Martin spent last night at a hilarious reading by David Sedaris, who was interrupted every few minutes by someone scream-laughing at the wrong times (i.e. in the middle of a sentence, before he’d said anything funny, or when he touched on something sad.) The entire audience presumed this person was suffering from a severe case of Tourette’s Syndrome, but it just turned out to be a really drunk college student from Western Carolina.

Kaitlyn Sage Patterson spent the week finishing edits and getting ready to fly across the country to Colorado for the Sirens Conference! She can’t wait to finally meet Cass IRL!


See you next week when we talk about writing and age!
