Overnight in New Orleans at Le Pavillon, a hotel I'm very VERY glad I picked off the internet. Gorgeous old building, wonderful staff. Then up early (VERY) to catch the 7 am train to Atlanta. Another very good train trip, with beautiful weather the whole way and a part of the country I had not seen before. Met interesting people, enjoyed the scenery, and once again found that I write like a bandit when on the train and shut into my own little "office." Over a thousand words yesterday, when I didn't feel that great, and over 2000 today when I was fine. Plus time to look at the scenery and talk to people.
Now I'm about to shower and hit the sack because tomorrow I head for the Sheraton to pick up my badge & stuff.
And then the fun begins.
