No Chance Meetings Part Two

I wrote a couple of weeks ago about a synchronicity that I followed up on. I’d run into someone multiple times and decided to introduce myself to see if there was a message she had for me (see blog post No Chance Meetings from April 21st). Though I believe in synchronicity, I was still a little surprised at the coincidence that she was trying to make a career change into freelance writing and researching. (No matter how intuitive you think you are, your ego is still going to tell you you’re making it all up.)We were at a conference for corporate women so there were very few writers there. The fact that she ran into me of all people was a stroke of luck — or synchronicity — on her part.

Or so I thought. I agreed to speak with her and give her some tips, but it turns out, I benefited more from the meeting than I thought I would. One of my goals is to finish my first novel — a goal that has gone uncompleted for years. That’s actually one of her main goals too. So we’ve formed a writer’s group in which we’ll meet once a week to hold each other accountable. The funny thing is, earlier that week, I had been thinking hard about that dream I have to write fiction and wondering how to finally make it happen. That chance meeting was an answer. We’ll see if it’s the right one. may receive compensation if users buy products or services mentioned or advertised on this site or click on some of the links on this site.
