Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for hosting Slice of Life Tuesday. I invite you to visit their site and read others' slice of life stories and leave a comment.
It's become a habit. Once a month, a small group of us meet for dinner, writing and feedback. This time together feeds my writing as well as my soul.
Tonight we were treated with homemade red beans and rice...the real thing, a drawer filled with a lovely assortment of teas, served nice and hot on this bitterly cold evening, fresh veggies and peanut clusters dressed in chocolate.
We sit around the table filling each other in on how things are going. We talk about the newest books we've read. We share stories and laughter.
And then it's time to write. We find spots to settle in and before long, the room is quiet except for the sound of computer keys being tapped. There are periods of furious typing and then a lull as we stop to think and revise at different points.
We end with sharing and feedback.
I relish this time together. These ladies are more than my writing group. They are my friends and I am so glad we've worked to carve out this time to support each other on our writing journeys. https://twowritingteachers.wordpress.com/2015/02/24/posttuessliceshere/
