Loving Books, Storytelling, & Movies #amwriting #fiction
I went to a first Meetup of a new writers group I started. If you haven't heard of Meetup, it's an app that allows you to gather with like-minded people interested in the same thing (writing, cooking, meditation, etc). You can start your own group, so I did. Met a new local author at our Books-A-Million (the coffee shop corner). We talked about the publishing world, writing stories, editors, agents, and more. Fun times. But of course I kept getting distracted by all the books and addicting book related items on sale. Odd because I'm totally into eBooks these days. Yet was reminded of why so many avid readers still love old school physical books. They do suck you in. Then I opened my Kindle app to all the reading sitting there waiting for me. That cured my itchy fingers of wanting to take something to the cashier desk.
So I still have yet to see the new Star Trek movie, but I'm going. I like Star Wars, don't get me wrong. But Star Trek is my jam. Stay tune because I'm definitely going to post a review.
I love storytelling, listening to stories as much as telling my own. Some of the best stories going can be found online. Between movies, books, and streaming you have to work hard at being bored because there is so much out here. Now I'm back to being hooked on documentaries. This is shaping up to be a fun summer!
