Pink Think: “We all need friends with whom we can speak our deepest concerns, and who do not fear to speak the truth in love to us.” – Margaret Guenther
On a highway, I caught up with this silver sedan that was going slower than usual. I slowed down, feeling impatient, and then saw the sign “Student Driver.” The rear bumper was dented, and I wondered how traumatic the experience was for the student who had that accident.
Sometimes when I write, I wish I could have a teacher beside me, encouraging, pointing out mistakes, giving me tips on how to overcome my fright as I navigate my novel. Somedays, I just have no clue what to do or how to get myself unstuck.
That’s why I love my writer’s group. I get feedback on my writing in a supportive, fun way. And those days I just want to get off the highway and get out of the race, they cheer me to stay on.
