My grandmother, Madeleine L'Engle, had an ever-expanding circle of writer friends, a path that I too am following. It has been a tremendous gift being in touch with a few from her circle, and I had the tremendous honor to be asked by Judith Lindbergh, author of The Thrall's Tale to guest blog on The Writer's Circle, which is one of my favorite blogs. Ever. So please hop on over and read my guest post - go on! Then come back - I'll still be here!
Judith and I have yet to meet in person, but she has been a tremendous support. She contacted me back in the summer about my work at Writopia, as she does workshops with kids and teens too! She encouraged me to reach out to WORDS bookstore in Maplewood, New Jersey, which is her home-town. So I am thrilled to say that I will be there, hawking Edges at 2PM this Saturday, and she will be in the audience!
We will come full circle. Judith, for me and my Gran, I'm gonna hug you so hard!
Postscript: OMG. I wrote the adjective TREMENDOUS three times! Instead of erasing and fixing, I thought I would point out my lack of self-editing to highlight it's importance!
