writing group part 5: the end (soLs)
STOP! Don’t read any farther, because this is the end of a slice I wrote with my writing group (BONS — Bits of Nothing or Something). To get the whole, start at Slices from the Sofa and follow the links, which will lead you back here — to THE END.
|BONS writing together.|
The click clack click of five key boards fill the air.
We are BONS writing together. It is only quiet for a moment. We are slicing from the sofa. The snickers begin. A few whispers. Then a laugh. Then Mary Helen laughs. And there is no quiet.
But there are still writers. Happy writers. Who are now fortified to continue because our energy has been boosted with encouragement and laughs and pie.
It is inevitable, though. The end is near.
The stacks of colorful plates are in the dishwasher.
The pie plate is empty.
Neville is continuing his adventure and waiting for it to be recorded then shared next month.
The new trophy and new notebook are tucked away in my computer bag.
It will be a month until we meet again. Words captured. Emails fly. Texts traded. And our friendship grows. We started as a group of writers and became friends. Who knew friendship could be the most important sustenance in a writer’s life?
