I went to a writer's conference yesterday and met so many wonderful writers! Everyone was extremely friendly and personable. We had to wait in long (sometimes one hour long!) lines to see an agent or publisher and passed the time with great conversation.
At one point, I brought up how it's funny that some people don't think you're really working when you're writing full time. Of course, I go on a rant about how one of my friends asked me to visit her for one week straight. I asked her how I'd be able to do that and she innocently replied, "well, you're not really doing anything."
This anecdote instigated everyone to share their "you're not really working" stories. It was fun to laugh it out and realize that we're not alone in this journey.
We also got into a "recent loves" discussion. Some common recent loves:
Belted boyfriend shirt:
Green tea with honey:
What are your recent loves?
Has anyone ever intimated that you're not working?
