One of the Big Pluses of My Life as a Writer

I took these as we were driving to Ridgecrest for my talk with the Ridgewriters group, which went well by the way. Despite the fact that only about 12 people were there, and at least two were residents of the senior facility where the meeting was held, I sold 6 books. We had a great trip to a fro, a lovely dinner with several of the members of Ridgewriters, and stayed in a comfortable older hotel that served a free breakfast.

The real highlight of the trip was after the meeting when I was signing books, the young man probably in his very early twenties, purchased a book and told me that the last time I'd come to speak I'd given him the incentive and courage to write a book which he's published. Believe me, that's what really made the trip totally worthwhile.

The downside of making a trip is all the things I didn't get done. Though I did a bit of promoting of the blog tour, I couldn't do all that I wanted so I played catch up when I got home. And as always, many emails arrived with jobs I needed to do. I'll manage, I always do.

While I'm sitting at my computer at home, I love hearing about all the places you visit.

That's really great about the young man who was inspired by you. It's great to make a positive impact on someone's life.
