Cold lobby, warm connections
I’m sitting in the freezing-cold lobby of a hotel in Nashville at the annual conference of the American Christian Fiction Writers. There’s free wireless internet down here, which is why I’m not upstairs in bed.
I can’t adequately describe the delight of being with so many like-minded people and meeting friends I’ve only known online before. As one of the speakers said today, and I paraphrase, there are no “normals” here.
The lobby’s crowded with writers who’ve abandoned their solitary pursuit to get connected, whether they’re blogging like me or actually socializing in person, gathered around a coffee table. I’d like to describe a few of these interesting creatures to you, but that might get me in trouble. Besides, it’s late and I need a few wide-awake brain cells for tomorrow. So good night.
