It's such fun to share your writing ideas and experiences with other writers. Hopefully I encourage them in their writing ventures.
Recently I was asked to speak to a newly formed writers' group in my hometown. It was exciting to realize the organizer thought I had knowledge to share with the other writers.
It's always interesting to learn about their writing projects...some fiction, others non-fiction. One is writing about her life for her family, another is writing a novel, one wants to write about her mother's life, and others are getting ideas for their projects.
The writers who attended seemed to think I gave them inspiration. I hope so.
