Margie Lawson's deep edits class



After the ACFW conference I (Margaret Daley) went to Margie Lawson's house (stayed in a nice inn next door) in the mountains outside Denver. There were six of us in the class and it was fantastic (picture above at the Mexican restaurant we ate at). I recommend it for any writer. A lot of hands on illustrations and examples as well as working on your own book (picture below of me, Vickie and Angie working on our books).

We had two dinners out--one in Boulder at the Russian Tea Room with Joan Johnston (picture below) and the other about three minutes from Margie's house which is on the side of a mountain. The view from her house is gorgeous. I went walking a couple of days and drank in my surroundings (picture above). And on top of all that it snowed for three days. The neat thing was the snow didn't stick to the road--only the ground. Beautiful (picture below of me and the snow--first of the season--started falling on the first day of Fall).

Great pictures. At first, I thought the top picture was Margie's house. So, give us the one thing you learned during "Deep Edits" class that you wish you'd learned years ago.

Pretty place and you look good walking in the snow, that is the kind I like, don't want it on the roads, but I know up there this winter there will be a lot of snow.
Glad y'all had fun,

The color codes used in the deep edit system help you to analyze your manuscript, Pamela.

Thanks, Edna.

I love these pictures! It's been fifteen years since I've been to Denver or Boulder. I remember it was in the eighties one day and the next it snowed!

Jill, it was almost that extreme when I was there--not quite the 80s but close.
