I had a lovely time yesterday with my new writer friend (Laura) that asked me for coffee back in June. I was actually able to answer some questions, and she was a great encouragement to me! I told her that I was feeling guilty about taking so long to get together with her, but she graciously said that this was actually the right time, bacause she wasn’t ready with questions back in June. She has been making good progress with her book, and now her nanny and her husband have the writing bug!
I was so glad to actually have been able to answer most of her questions and help her avoid some of the mistakes I have made, and she was a great encouragement to me. Another friend has asked me to mentor her, and I now understand that this is an important part of the writer’s lifestyle. I’ve had soooo much help along the way, I want to give back.
Thank you so much, Laura! It won’t be another five months until our next coffee, I assure you.
