WFTJ & Searching for Spice On an End Cap!

My Words For The Journey writers group meets in Barnes & Noble on the last Tuesday night of the month.

This month Donita K. Paul was our guest speaker. She taught writers how to achieve backbone in their writing life. Great talk. It was very inspiring and encouraging. She helped some of us weird writers to feel more normal. Er, maybe not exactly normal, but we could understand ourselves within the context of a writer's realm. Some of the quotes she shared evoked universal understand among us. Yeah, we became one with the likes of John Steinbeck and Ernest Hemingway.

Then I took a tour through the store and was thrilled to see Searching for Spice on an end cap.
See! That's actually a self portrait. LOL. Maybe I should just stick to writing.

Then my friend Jan came over and took another photo. Isn't SFS in great company?! Brandilyn Collins, Angela Hunt, Terri Blackstock. Wow!
The other excitement of the evening was when the WFTJ Devotional Writing Contest winners were announced. Kay Day won the award for the unpublished writer, and Robbie Iobst won the published writer's award. Good job, girls! I wasn't fast enough with my camera so this is a picture of them at the WFTJ picnic lunch. Robbie's on the left and Kay's on the right.
