Kick Off

Kick offs. They have them in football and my writing group had theirs Tuesday evening at a local bookstore. It was great fun with door prizes given out and the winners for the summer writing contest announced. (I didn't enter by the way.)

More important it gave us a chance to catch up on each others lives and reconnect not just as writers but also as people, each of us unique and none of us trying to be like someone else. We weren't envious of each others success or lack thereof,  because we celebrate equally both our failures/rejections and our victories/publication.

Each of us are on our own path to publication. That is as it should be since we are each different from one another and have our own goals and where we want to be either today, tomorrow or five years from now.

Such support is more than worth its weight in either gold or silver. I am fortunate indeed.

  1. It was a fun evening. Reconnecting with all these great writers made my night.
