Meeting Authors

It’s fun to meet an author whose books I’ve enjoyed. There’s a humility to writing that seems to keep authors more grounded than other celebrities.  They speak about hearing their characters talk and following where their stories lead, expressing their experience that the story is bigger than they are.

I like that sense of mission and of connection with a bigger story.  It’s applicable to all activities, I think, not just creative works.  There is a bigger story to engage and guide us and if we listen we can contribute to it, too.
