    Beautiful writing, beautiful women. Agree that I never thought Twitter friends would become real life friends!

    Love this Caris! I totally agree. As inspiring as was the atmosphere and speakers, nothing was more memorable than to have those face to face discussions and translate those still shots into real people.

      yes! Which is why I was kind of surprised that Story didn’t have an environment like that set up – a meeting area for writers, artists, filmmakers, etc…..seems like that would be a good place to connect with other people. If I had gone alone, without knowing so many people, I don’t think the experience would have been so rich.

    This is so cool! I hope someday I can also be real-life friends with other bloggers I’ve met on the interwebz.

      I’ve met a few other people I’ve known for a long time online and every time it is so fun and special.

    So glad you were all able to attend and be with one another. It’s incredible to meet up, isn’t it? In every case, I have found the folks I come to love via their posts and on twitter are even more wonderful in real life.

      yes, they all were. And now I can read their posts with their voice in my head. It makes it all that much more real and meaningful.

    Fantastic recap Caris. That’s how I felt last year after my first time at STORY. It was totally fantastic to find people doing the same kind of stuff and who “got me” and what I care about. I’m excited to see which directions you’ll go now that you know you’re not the only crazy one. :)

    And how cool was Rachel to share so freely from her own writing experiences? I’m so glad there are people like Kristin who can organize social gatherings so well!

      I know. It wouldn’t have been nearly as fun without being able to connect with people without being rushed by the bells!

    I love this, Caris, and I loved meeting the real YOU behind these beautiful words—”story made alive,” indeed!

    This is truth: ” I don’t have to be somebody before I can do something. I already am somebody and I was created to do something.” I’m so thankful that truth is flooding you.
