Friday Five- What a rush!
Last night I spoke at the local writer's group meeting. The members write everything from poems and songs to fiction and non-fiction novels. So when I offered to speak, I thought long and hard about a topic that would hopefully interest all of them. The topic was " Stages of Writing".
My stages were Believe, Perfect, Network, Submit, Publish, Promote, and Never Forget. I was worried it wouldn't last the hour- and I went over. I was afraid they would all just sit there and stare at me as I talked. They actually laughed and asked good questions. I knewI'd start off fast in my nervousness, but I didn't. It was an awesome evening and more fun than I had expected!
I took my camera so I could put a photo up here today- and I forgot to give it to Lindy to take a picture! DUH!
So today, my Friday Five are five things said to me at the end of the evening.
1) Great information.
2) That was fun!
3) What an inspirational talk.
4) You've given me direction and hope.
5) You set the bar for any future speakers!
Do you think I'm walking on clouds today! Yes!!! I can't believe I stood in front of twenty-five writers and everyone of them seemed to glean something from what I said. Makes me want to sign up to teach something at Nationals! LOL
What are three things good that happened in your life this week?
