‘The Internet is Not a Cigarette Break’ and Other Gems

An Evening with Dani Shapiro

On October 22nd, national bestselling author Dani Shapiro (www.danishapiro.com) spent the evening with an intimate group of us at the Scape Gallery in Corona Del Mar, California, as part of Barbara DeMarco-Barrett’s Pen On Fire Speaker Series (http://www.barbarademarcobarrett.com/speakers-series/).

She shared compelling ideas about the writing process in relation to her recent book Still Writing: The Pleasures and Perils of a Creative Life. The book, she said, is about “everything I know about how to live.” Not just about how to write.
