“But you also have choices. Yes — and choices are nothing less than the power of creation. Through them, you can create your own life, your own future, your own destiny… By your choices you might even create an entirely new world, one that will spring into being from the ruins of the old.” — T.A. Barron from The Mirror of Merlin
Is it luck? Is it perseverance? Is it some combination of the two? Or maybe its an age-old secret only handed down to a select few? Or maybe the answer lies somewhere else entirely? How do we truly become the person we always wanted to be?
Yesterday was our writer’s meeting. We decided to do a pot luck dinner and talk about the blessings and curses of being a writer. The spread we had was delicious and the company even better. It’s so great to have the opportunity to be apart of such a wonderful team. I’m blessed and especially thankful for my family of writers.
The best part is being able to have people to talk to who know what you are going through. It’s like a support group for writers. Every now and again we throw out lifelines to those who feel as if they are drowning and sometimes I find myself a precipitant of those lines. Mostly it’s a chance to make friends with like-mined individuals as well as have intelligent adult conversation (hard to come by when you’re a stay a home mom).
So I’m thankful for my support group of writer’s (you know who you are). 😉
