Julie Ray, Sheila Wilensky and I met at 47 Scott the other day for happy hour. We try to get together monthly at different restaurants to share professional and creative information, to inspire each other and to catch up personally. And to have fun.
It turns out that each of us have a blog and the two of them blogged about our meeting. So, I’m blogging about their blogging. Sheila’s blog is tucsonwritereditor.com and Julie’s is tucsongraphicdesign.com and you can follow the links to what they had to say.
One of the things I’ve noticed about our informal meetings is that we talk very fast to get everything in because after a month of not seeing each other we all have lots of stories to share. Stories about what we’ve read, who we’ve met, how our families are doing, creative projects, fashion decisions, the list goes on. Just like anytime you get together with good friends, stories are what fuels conversation. And happy hour is the lubrication.
