I Joined a Writing Group!

Writer… it’s a word I want to be a strong part of my identity… right up there with Mother, Sister, Wife…”

Those are words I wrote a week ago… and last night I took action…

I battled 20 something girls in short dresses and cropped jean jackets for a parking spot downtown… walked 3 blocks… entered a trendy coffee shop… ordered a pot of tea and a piece of chocolate cake… and sat down to the first meeting of a writing group.

Granted there were only two of us there… but it was magic.

 I was completely unprepared… but luckily my comrade gave me extra paper and a pencil… she opened up to a page in her writing exercises book… already marked for the occasion… and we wrote…

I discovered that I am really more of a typer than a pencil and paper gal… my right pinky was screaming at me…

We shared… We were brave… And vulnerable… and I left with a happy heart…

I am a writer.
