It's not every day that I am invited into a gorgeous reference room in a restored heritage building, to sit at a grand dining table decked out with fine linens, to share a catered private lunch with four young authors. These writers won a contest with the prize, "Lunch and conversation with Nikki Tate" (in the special secret room upstairs in the libarary...). And boy, did we chat! We shared our thoughts about writing, getting ideas, keeping journals, writing fantasy and science fiction, non-fiction, and more... I came away so inspired by all the great ideas that the prize-winners shared with me! It was pretty cool. In this photo, we were perusing a scrapbook about the library renovation project... taking a break from all the fine food and heady conversation.
