A Pride of Writers
We had a true soiree last night: a warm fire, wine and delicious nibbles while each one in turn read out their work. What a treat of all kinds of writing from a beautiful poem about Keats to the story of a beauty queen manqué. There was guitar playing and singing, too. As I sat there I thought how wonderful it is when a group of people get together and create such enjoyment...the pleasure of conversation and creativity. i was pleased to have the opportunity to read the first chapter of my 'Monet' novel and to feel I was going in the right direction. Today I tried to come up with a collective description for a group of writers and decided on a pride. You have to be lion hearted to keep on writing and also to read your work aloud.
