The sun sets on another day...
The day started cool, crisp, and over the top beautiful, but the clouds poured in, and the sky threatened all afternoon, only to become nothing at all as twilight fell.
As writers many people use big words, like existential. A word meaning or defining the interactions with, well, people. Today I had the privilege or sitting with a number of authors. Some I have read, some I have not. We spoke of many things and in the process a pattern emerged, a pattern of people who are trying to tell a story to people.
The people I was with today defined themselves by their stories. Some were stories that were true, that echoed in the back of my mind. some were stories that were fiction, that resounded powerfully with me, but all of them were interesting from a variety of points of view, all of them showed their hearts, bared their souls, and told a story. Isn't that what we all want to do? We want to tell a story, we want to build a bridge of ideas to let people know experiences or visions. Writers just find a way to do it with words.
I would like to suggest you take a moment, find an author you like, and enjoy their books. Read on, and read be a supporter, and as you achieve a dream, help authors achieve one as well. The dream of entertaining you. Writers create existential interactions to build those same existential interactions. As they do, they become more in touch with their readers, and perhaps understand human nature more.
So as the sun sets on another day, it was a good author day! It was a good day, and it was a great time being with so many talented people. I hope I can be there to help them, and have a little fun along the way, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, read more, and support local authors and bookstores...
