A year ago I went to the ACFW Indianapolis conference on an adventure.
Finally I was going to meet the people who I had shared my heart,
and writing with.
Would they be as awesome as I imagined?
Would they laugh at my antics as much in person as they do online??
(that one was particularly important…lol!)
I was a little nervous!
But as we met and mingled,
our nerves fell away and we found ourselves chatting like old friends.
It is hard to explain to those who have not experienced it,
but our projects–written, prayed and cried over–bound us together.
They became my writing family.
My closest friends, despite the distance.
Friends that I’d met online,
(I know…creepy and unsafe…)
became my comrade in arms.
They understand writing until the wee hours of the morning,
wrestling with plot lines that won’t behave,
and caring so much for your story that it hurts your heart when it is rejected.
And our love crosses into our everyday lives:
and rejoice together through all of lifes ups and downs.
So join me in raising a glass of your favorite,
to my fellow Scriblerians.
May we spend many more years writing together!!!!
And of course…publishing many books. 😉
I love you guys!!!!!!
Have you ever been surprised by friendship?? I’d love for you to share in the comments. 🙂
