Lauren Dittrich, 30 Creative writing and publishing graduate student What brings you out tonight? My good friend wanted to come here and I'm thrilled to be here. What are you drinking tonight and why? I started out with some bourbon, then decided I should switch to wine and I've had two glasses of wine that my friend selected. Are you usually a wine person or more of a bourbon girl? I am both. I'm part of a wine club. What do you want to do with your writing and publishing? I want to become a ghost writer ideally, and I do short stories as well. Tell me more about ghost writing. So if an awesome person wants to tell a story but can't write,that's where I come in. You tell me your story and I translate it. How do you feel about all the snow outside? I have a seven-pound dog so Im leaning against it. He's been pooping all over the house. Do you have the snow booties for your dog? I do, but they don't fit.
