This Wednesday was a wonderful day. I got to meet with nine other young women for lunch at a bright and airy restaurant across from a beautiful courthouse. All of us are writers, published and non-published, with an equal passion for books—and pleasing God. Over our food, we talked, among other things, about favorite books, movies, songs, and our own story characters before continuing the lively discussion in a nearby park. The weather was perfect! We spent almost four hours together. The interaction of our ten different personalities as they got to know one another was fun and stimulating.
I love these photos:
J. Grace Pennington, me, and Sarah Holman. I haven’t read Grace’s books, though hopefully I will someday because they sound intriguing, and I really enjoyed the works of Sarah’s that I’ve read.
There is no doubt that writers inspire other writers. I don’t know if it’s creativity osmosis or not, but I found that we didn’t even have to talk much about our stories or the work of writing for me to feel recharged and excited to sit down and write several hundred words after I got home.
P.S. Besides the creativity juice, I also gained a desire to see The Avengers—it seems everyone loved that movie but me, because I haven’t watched it yet! Have you seen it? What do you think of it?
