Our fearless writing workshop -- Cathy Colman's "Tongue-in-Groove" -- read poetry, short stories and chunks of novels at Beyond Baroque last night. Despite pre-reading jittery bits, the short story I read ("Egghead") went down well, not that I was in any position to tell. I was the "closer," the last to go, so I had a full hour and a half of feeling as if my tummy were about to explode. But lovely supportive friends made approving noises at me when I came back to my seat.
