Hello from a native Texan (I'm originally from Fort Worth) and visitor to Marfa! I am a fiction writer working on a novel partially set in a fictional West Texas town. I've been here a few weeks on a fairly passive "research" trip, soaking in the landscape and exploring the region and its history. I'll be working/writing at The Sentinel this Wednesday, July 21, from 8A to 1P. If any Marfa residents want to stop by, I'd love to meet you and hear about life in Marfa. Would this interest anyone whatsoever? I have no idea! But I'll be here regardless, hoping to chat with anyone who calls West Texas home. Please feel free to come with a friend or even pass this message on to any big talkers who might enjoy an eager audience.
