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 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!
