Writers Lurk Where You Least Expect

This morning was a beautiful reminder that writers and stories are absolutely everywhere. We spent the early part of this Friday at the Santa Monica Public Library’s Martin Luther King Jr. Auditorium at a seminar put on by the California State Board of Equalization. Scintillating as that sounds, guess who lurked there in the crowd.

Writers!

Writers of all sorts, in fact. Memoirists, creative non-fiction authors, journalers planning their first long-format project, screenwriters, and even documentary filmmaker Mialyn Hanna. Writing and editing can be lonely occupations at times and it’s such a lift to be reminded that stories are indeed everywhere, waiting to be told.

So hello to all of you who gathered today and who made a point of connecting. Come, join our little world of storytelling. Comment. Sign up. Or send a personal note. Whatever moves you, just keep writing!
