Meeting blog buddies.
7:30 am and 74 degrees.
This was too fun for words. We talked so loud and so enthusiastically that all the other customers wanted to be at our table.
I could see them whispering.
Or else they were complaining about us to the manager.
It's so hard to tell don't you think?
Everyone in New York was how I imagined them only far more beautiful, warm, and friendly.
And then I met some of my blogging buddies--
Kim Stagliano in New York and M G Tarquini from Phoenix (visiting Honolulu).
What I find amazing is email and phone gives a better sketch of what a person is truly like. Because you have that history there are no snap judgments or assumptions.
The connection is made and you know -- no matter what -- you will adore that person.
My blogging buddies are morphing into my friends.
Writing friends that understand the angst and trauma of querying, agenting, and submitting.
Supporters who cheer each publishing success and commiserate over each set back.
A group I am bringing along for the ride as pay back.
Pay back for the enormous cheers I receive each time another milestone is achieved.
I hope to travel to the various places and meet you all when my book comes out. You need to tell me where you are.
I want votes.
Places so far:
Any place else?
Which of these cities can you go to easily?
