We shared our enthusiams for things like The Power of Now, creativity, running (Evelyn more than me) and Improv (more me than Evelyn). We shared a distrust of complicated, how-to self-help manuals and a preference for simple things like sharing direct personal experience.
We also had a good chat about writing a book. Evelyn wants to write one and if her blog is anything to go by, it should be a good one. I also keep saying I want to write one, but this conversation has made me question that. (That’s the great thing about a good conversation, sometimes your ideas change without the other person trying to change you.)
Where I got to was this: What if what I call writer’s block is actually a good clue that I don’t really want to write a book at all? After all, blogging comes fairly easily to me, so perhaps I should keep doing that.
