10. Women rock
9. Sleep is over-rated
8. Laughing is good for the body, soul and spirit
7. Crying together is better than crying alone
6. Beautiful music makes everyone feel better
5. Whatever it is you most DON'T want to write about? Write about that
4. It takes a village to raise a writer
3. Many hands make labor light
2. Slumber parties in your 40s are even more fun and sillier than in your teens
1. love.

I'm thinking next time we fully integrate the sleepover/writing part and extend it at least one extra day. But only if Michelle and Jenny promise to come. I'll host!
