Six years ago, during NaNo, a friend and I began to meet at a coffee shop to work on our novel at 7 am Sunday mornings. Now our group has doubled and we meet every Sunday, all year long. I have another friend who I've been meeting with for nearly eight years to write deeply together. Holding space for each other's creativity makes the storyteller in each of us feel honored. It's powerful to have companions on this journey to support, to nurture, to challenge, to listen.
