My Writing Buddy
My friend who lives near Rochester, NY has 85 people in her writers' group. Here in the Jemez Mountains, it's my buddy Shirley Duke and me. Shirley lives here part-time and in the Dallas area part-time, and we hadn't we hadn't seen each other in a while. We had breakfast recently, and caught up with our writing successes and failures (we've both had articles rejected by Andy Boyles of Highlights as "too encyclopedic"). She has a science blog and when she's done reviewing the books, she donates them to our library where I work. She's a talented writer, a generous friend, and a lot of fun, and I'm lucky to have her in my life.
