Celebrating the triumphs of friends

“I count myself in nothing else so happy
As in a soul rememb’ring my good friends.”
~ William Shakespeare

Last night I had the pleasure of attending the book launch of Charlotte Nash’s Ryders Ridgehosted at that bastion of local writing support Avid Reader, in West End, Brisbane.

Charlotte is a dear friend, and a member of our writers’ group Sisters of the Pen.

I felt so proud, hearing Kim Wilkins (you may know her by her pen name: Kimberly Freeman) introduce Charlotte, and share the history of how this book came into being.

I got to take home a signed copy of Char’s book, had hugs from my ‘Sisters’ Meg, Fi, Char and Kim, and lots of extra hugs from friends there to support Charlotte’s launch.

After a crappy couple of days of feeling miserable and being befuddled, it was a magical elixir for my soul.

It’s a wonderful feeling; seeing the people that you love work at, struggle with, not give up on, and from that process realise their dreams.

I encourage you to keep putting one foot in front of the other with your dreams too. Bless xx

    1. This is really inspiring and so nice to read! I love watching those close to you reach their dreams, and in terms of writing, it feels even more possible to reach my dreams when I read things like this. Glad the cruddy feelings were swept aside by going to this. X
