New friends

I had the pleasure of meeting [personal profile] ranunculus this morning.

It was a last-minute meetup, slipped in to her schedule during a short visit to Portland. As it happened, it also gave me a reason to slip out of a scintillating meeting about year-end accruals and journal entries.

We met at Powell's--of course--in the coffee shop, and instantly launched into a get-acquainted conversation, which included lots of travel tales and just enough enticing tidbits about her line of work, and writing, and our very different backgrounds, to make me wish we'd had several more hours.

Her significant other and the friend they were visiting here lugged piles of books in from the shelves and set them on the long table, research for a novel the three of them are working on.

The local friend, on hearing that I currently have four whole paragraphs of my next novel written, and that the novel might conceivably involve magic, offered to include me in her sci-fi/fantasy writer's group--which I'm very interested in, having not been in a writing group for about a hundred years.

Sadly, though I managed to escape the accruals and journal entries, I did have to go back to work rather than join them all at the food carts for lunch before their flight home. But it was a lovely meeting and I'm so glad we did it.

Thank you, [personal profile] ranunculus!
