I run into writers everywhere

It amazes me (and I love it) when I meet people who write. Or I find out people I've known for years write. It's like instantly there's this bond. There's so much to talk about. First drafts. Rejection. Conferences.

I'm at a birthday party for my little girl, and it turns out the dad of the birthday girl is an author.
I'm at the coffee machine at work, and it turns out our technical writer is an author.

And the funny thing everyone says?

"I hope to be able to write full time."

Me too!

Me, too! I love how the Internet -- blogging in particular -- brings writers together.
