Writer’s meeting today


I enjoyed today very much, participating in a statewide writer’s group meeting. We met at a nice restaurant, i was able to drive with several new people (all of whom were thoroughly enjoyable!) and hear encouraging speakers. One in particular stuck out, as a homeschooling mom whom, among other things, has a business of teaching writers about business.

 Great information, and very encouraging to this long slumped writer.  I even won a book in a prize drawing. I didnt notice it the first time i scanned the selections, but when I touched it knew that God wanted me to have this one. It is by an author i respect, Marybeth Whalen titled For the Write Reason. I look forward to reading it. This goal alone fits in with my “5” book.

Did i tell you all about the book my mom gave me last year by that title? Nutshell, buy it. FIll it out, do it. You will be somewhere in 5 years, why not set priorities and accomplish dreams?  One of my goals to finish by the end of the week ( ok, 4 weeks ago…) was to categorize all the writing books I have and make a plan to read them all in the next five years. This new one might be my second. RIght after I finish, again, Conquering the Time Factor by Julie-Allyson Ieron. Conquer, I like that word.
