A Bookgroup Visit

bookgroup copy.jpgI love visiting bookgroups when I have time. I love it even when I have no time, like today. It was a wonderful break from the hard last few days. 
Here I am with part of the group I met with this afternoon. They’re mostly teachers (yay, teachers!). They read KEEPER OF THE LIGHT (although one member has read nearly everything I’ve written–thank you, Betty) and were so enthusiastic. I loved hearing their thoughtful consideration of the characters and story. They also fed me an elegant lunch and we chatted for several hours. It was just the boost I needed to get back to serious writing tomorrow.

    How fabulous! Was this local or while you were out-of-town?

    Local, Kathy. And very close to home, which made it extra special.

    Bookclub looks great-glad you are home.
    I started one of my classes last night (7-l0) and then drive home-but one of my favorite profs-lots of reading (short stories, books, etc…texts too), writing…lots and lots and lots.
    Comps are in a couple of weeks…then project…
    Thanks for the compliment for teachers-we have a life that I never imagined before becoming a teacher in my 40’s…
    Take care…
