Attending a meetup, networking event or writer’s group always guarantees you meeting a mixed bag of people. Today’s random meetup with the Ocean Beach SD Writer’s Group was all that… and more. 10 minutes after ordering my Dirty Cuban (think Dirty Chai with less milk, more espresso.), I was surrounded by a hodge-podge of writers from all walks of life:
An ex-stripper-turned blogger.
A token hippie.
An ex-military officer-turned fictional mystery writer.
A retired author-turned Amazon best-seller.
And a fellow doggie-clutched copywriter also life searching.
One hour and a cold coffee later, I learned the ultimate can’t-judge-a-book-by-its-cover lesson:
Everyone has an interesting story to tell, but not everyone is a good storyteller.
