My commitment to living my life as a writer has brought me into contact with some interesting, creative, impressive and kind people. One of the many writer friends/mentors I’ve been lucky to meet is Ana Hays McCracken. She writes a whimsical and lovely blog about her dog, Avy and other curious things.
She has written professionally for many years and has been published in two Chicken Soup books. She also has an insightful, entertaining essay in “Nothing But the Truth So Help Me God: 51 Women Reveal the Power of Positive Female Connection.”
Recently, she gave me a shout out on her website for which I am eternally grateful. I am moved to do the same.
We had lunch not too long ago and reminisced about meeting on a Haven retreat in Montana and how we’d love to have more writer-y experiences where we could talk books, write in a cabin in the woods and sip hot cocoa around a fire. My writing community is growing and that’s a great thing!
Another exciting mention came from Laura Munson! She was kind enough to link to our interview in her Haven Newsletter. For inspiration and news about Laura’s retreats and her books, visit her website.
Writers never get tired of talking about books and writing and books and writing. Most are helpful and most love animals. See, they’re the best people. How have you been growing and tending your writing community?
