The Hollis Table

       This is my friend from Claremore, Carol A. Round. Some of you may recognize her face or name from the daily newspaper. Carol writes a weekly inspirational column that is found in Okmulgee’s Daily Times and several other papers across north east Oklahoma. She joined me for a salad lunch before we headed out on our trip to Texas last Friday. 

We attended a writer’s workshop at Cross Timbers church in Keller, Texas Saturday taught by Karen Power and Frank Ball. We had plenty of time on the 6 hour ride to talk about our writing projects, our children, and our homes (and Carol’s dog, Taco!) 

The workshop was well worth the expense and the drive. I trust we will both progress and improve because of the information we gleaned in the classes. Also, meeting so many other writers is a blessing and encouragement.

Carol has two books which are collections of her reader’s favorite columns. She is working on a third. Doesn’t she look bright and friendly and like someone who has a lot to share?

  1. Thank you, Elece. I had a wonderful time on our trip getting to know you and your family better. By the way, the salad you fixed for our Friday lunch was better than any meal we ate on our way to and from Texas or while we were there. The workshop was wonderful too–very informative. God bless you my friend!!
