Thursday afternoon tea! Celebration!
The writing community I have encountered is so supportive of its members. I’m currently taking a writing class and find the encouragement of the instructor and the participants gratifying.
Other writers in my circle are always helpful. We celebrate one another’s achievements. This month Kira Brady’s trilogy, beginning with Hearts of Darkness (to be published August 7, 2012) is receiving glowing reviews. Romance Writers of America announced the finalists for their 2012 contests–and three finalists are of special significance for me—-RITA finalists, Linda Winstead Jones and Cherry Adair, and Golden Heart finalist, Marni Donnelly Folsom. Congratulations!
For a special celebration of my first publication, Kira Brady treated me to afternoon tea at the charming Queen Mary Tea Shop in Seattle, Washington. Celebrations don’t get any better than this—or more elegant! Sorbet followed by a three-tiered selection of treats (tiny sandwiches, assorted fruits, sweet bites, tender scones) and accompanied by a pot of tea–(I had white peach–delicious!) The celebration of family, friends, accomplishments and good news!
I am thankful for the many joys in my life. And I hope you all have good news to celebrate!
