Writing Pleasures

I recently had the pleasure and the privilege of talking to Tammy Bjelland on her Stories of Growth podcast which will air on November 1st. If you wanted to attend tomorrow’s seminar, The Joys and Frustrations of Writing AND Publishing a Book, but can’t, you can still listen in to the podcast for my take on various aspects of the writing process and writing life. It was a great conversation which you will enjoy in any case.

One of the best aspects of the writing life are the people you meet, and as it turns out, I actually ran into Tammy at Jala Yoga in Winchester yesterday. On Wednesday, I had the pleasure of meeting two friends of Boots Poffenberger at the Hagerstown Lion’s Club weekly luncheon. Bernie Lesky was a hunting buddy of Boots and Dave Kaplan is the son of Abner Kaplan, who happened to be Boots’ best man at his wedding and a long-time friend. It was very special to meet two people so intimately connected to someone whom I researched so thoroughly and came to enjoy so much.

I am certainly NOT enjoying the vitriol surrounding the upcoming election, but I’ll have more on that next week, as well as another Five Minute Fiction For Free entry later in November.

About Austin Gisriel

You know the guy that records a baseball game from the West Coast in July and doesn't watch it until January just to see baseball in the winter? That's me. I'm a writer always in search of a good story, baseball or otherwise.

    Sounds like Winchester life is agreeing with you! Yoga is on my list, but not there yet.
