12 Jul Musings on Writing, Creativity, and Community in All Things
I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July! We witnessed an exquisitely mesmerizing fireworks show over the water. My daughter hasn’t stopped talking about it all week! Remember seeing fireworks for the first time? Or your first taste of ice cream? Most of us probably don’t remember, but that’s one of the best things about parenting, you get to experience all those sweet firsts again through the eyes of your child.
My husband is traveling for work and I’m feeling a bit under the weather, so I’m very grateful that this is the week my wonderfully kind and supportive author friend Suzanne Woods Fisher is posting about Flourish on her blog. A few weeks ago she interviewed me about writing a book, creativity, and the importance of community in writing, and I thought I’d share our conversation with you. (I know I’ve been writing about writing a lot lately, I promise this is the last post for awhile!)
Suzanne writes delicious, thoughtful, and beautifully rendered Christian fiction, mostly about the Old Order Amish. I’ve been tearing through her novels for the last few months and hounding her about when the next one is coming out. She’s also a warm, wise, and deep spiritual thinker and a top-notch encourager. If you haven’t read any of her books, you’ve got lots of reading pleasure ahead of you.
