A new year tends to make me reflective. I think about what I want my life to look like, what I want to be doing (not just for a paycheck, though I think about that too. But I ask myself, What do I want all that other time to add up to? What do I want to be able to show for myself this year?)
I reached a familiar conclusion: I want creative projects to be prominent in my life. I want writer's group.
So yesterday four writers piled into one car in the rain, for a winding drive through rural NJ. We were seeking wine, a warm location, and time and space to talk about our craft. We found it all.
