You mean, I get to talk about writing?

I have a neighbor that I met last Christmas. Jill D. Miller is the force behind Creative Solutions, a consulting firm that helps entrepreneurs achieve their dreams. She also teaches Entrepreneurship classes at Wichita State University.

She knows Kylie Brown who is the founder of Creative Rush which is a forum for creative individuals to collaborate, connect, and inspire one another. Programs include the 1st TUE TALKS and Down to the Wire – a 24 HR Film Race.

Then there is the Wichita Art and Book Fair being held this year at the Wichita Art Museum. And one of the events is the Creative Rush Panel Discussion being held on Sunday, May 10, 2015 from 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM. And it’s free.

And I’m going to be on the panel, sitting on the famous orange couch and talking about writing, the process of writing, the successes and failures, the challenges and obstacles. Let’s face it, next to actually writing, my favorite thing is talking about writing. It’s a secretive and highly personal world that you let people into when you discuss the ‘hows’ and ‘whys’ and it gives people insight into just how madcap and frustrating and mentally taxing it can be, rather than allow them to think that all writers do is sit on their butts and…write.

I’m getting ahead of myself. The bottom line is that I am grateful to Jill and Kylie for the opportunity. It’ll be fascinating to see who attends and what questions they might have. Sometimes it takes an inquiry out of the blue to make you think of things that might slip your mind.

Take advantage of the entire Wichita Art and Book Fair and please stop by the Creative Rush Panel Discussion. I look forward to seeing you there.
