I'm kinda busy. I work so I talk to people there - the parents I work with, the colleagues and friends I have there. I drive my kids to bball and hockey so I talk to people there - other parents, mostly, about how awesome our kids are. I have my bookclub ladies - we meet once a month and I have a few friends who also manage to escape our responsibilities once in very long whiles to go to dinner and/or a movie...
But it's only been through the process of editing and publishing Game Plan that I've collected (Kamy) some friends who like to talk about the whole writing thing. It's a different kind of energy that seems to fill up my stores and push me forward.
And kinda makes it real.
All that and there was good pasta too.
