Writer's group: where the he** are you?

We were supposed to meet at 5 in Zürich. I left the safety of my little village to venture to the big city. Arrived 15 minutes early. We were supposed to meet at 5. Well, it's 5.30 and no one showed up. So, to dampen my frustration, I thought I'd write about it. Grrrrrr.

I didn't expect that!

You are born to be a writer if your life affords you such a rich seam of material. Apologies if it rather seems we are laughing at you, but it is very funny ...

(... and there but for the Grace of God go I ...)

Re: Writer's group: where the he** are you?

Well, all's well that ends well. I found the right Starbucks and the small group, had an intensive discussion about writing, etc., and left with a good feeling.

I learned a lot today:

- There are quite a few Starbucks in Zürich.
- Central is near the train station.
- Some Starbucks offer wifi without a code and with some with a code.
- Trying to start a thread via an iphone with a poor connection can be very confusing.
- Writers can be a very nice lot to get to know.

and my favorite:
- good looking men ride trains
