Girls' Night Out!
If you are a regular reader, you know that last week was a rough one on the Playground. I myself had to deal with two car breakdowns and client confusion. Yikes!
But then on Saturday night a bunch of ladies from our RWA chapter (including most of the Playfriends) met up at the local bookstore in support of one of our Mavens, Beverly Barton, who was having a book signing.
Yes, its great to see our wonderful Maven and be there as she visited our town, though she definitely had enough fans show up that she wouldn’t have been lonely without us. But we also had lots of fun simply hanging out in the coffee shop and plotting out new books, fixing problem plots, and simply catching up on progress.
As women, I think we all recognize the renewing power of a night out with the girls. Afterward, you feel refreshed and problems don’t seem so huge. After a night out with fellow writers, I also feel energized to write again (I came home and wrote 4 more pages) and happy from spending time with others who “get” it.
So let’s head wipe the slate clean and start a new week this Monday. Tell me your favorite activity or thing to kick the doldrums! (Is a week away an option?) One commenter will win a copy of one of Beverly’s books.
This Thursday, August 26, we welcome author Tawny Weber to the Playground. Drop by for a good chat and encouragement. :)
