It was a night to debrief.
Ten of us, all writers, gathered at our first writers group meeting since the Write! Canada conference in Guelph last month.
We shared our "take-aways," our goals, epiphanies and excitement at what we had learned and experienced at this year conference.
Oh, it was a fun evening at Bonnie's place. We spilled stories like so many knocked over jugs of milk!
There were tales of roommates hand picked by God; of callings affirmed; "Divine Appointments;" gifts acknowledged; next steps already taken and wobbly but brave launches into new territory. And that with several of us missing.
While getting ready to leave for the writers group meeting I came across a blog post I had printed off a friend's blog last December. Sharon Olson wrote Had Your Hamburg. It is an excellent post about a book I loved: Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell.
Gladwell wrote about consistent practice over a long time (10,000 hours) resulting in mastery of a skill. It is so applicable to our little band of scribes.
I really just meant to commend Sharon's post to you and got carried away.
It is late. Adeiu!
