And a lovely afternoon was had by all

Well, our open house at Big Tony’s yesterday was a ton of fun!  People kept coming in all afternoon, browsed and shopped and chatted up the publishers and authors from Black Moss Press, Biblioasis and Walkerville Publishing.  And the nibblies were totally awesome, to coin a phrase.  Big Tony has a Big Brick Oven which he uses to make his culinary delights, and it works goooood!

I got to meet some very interesting people, some of whom were kind enough to purchase my book, and before the afternoon was done, there were tentative plans made for a writers’ retreat.  Very nice!  And I’m learning that writing is about more than just, well, writing.  It’s about building relationships too, and I don’t mean networking, although that’s very  important.  It’s about listening to folks, their ideas and their creativity.  It’s engaging in honest and open communication, all of which can lead to some fascinating conversations and spirited debates.  It’s about hearing the crackle of electricity in the room, rubbing shoulders with other people’s imagination, and feeling inspired, eager to return to your literary calling.  I would encourage any aspiring writer to haunt your local book fests, book launches, readings, writing salons, and ‘meet and greet’ with authors.  You’ll encounter people who can help you with your writing and your desire for publication, and even better, you may be enriched by lasting friendships as well.
