There is finally a Writers Club on the Kona side of the Big Island Hawaii! I met up with another writer named Blake at Daylight Mind, a wonderful new coffee shop on Ali'i drive. The atmosphere is warm (It's always warm in Hawaii) and scented with coffee, fresh bread, and lovely ocean salt.
We sat on the second floor balcony under a large umbrella and overlooking the waves that broke against the volcanic coastline. There we talked of our goals and hopes for this new club. The heat caused beads of sweat to form on my forehead but the breeze from the ocean placated me.
We, as a Kona Writers Group, have the following goals for the club:
- To start writing regularly and to write for an audience
- To be inspired to write
- To receive feedback and constructive criticism
- To socialize among likeminded people
If this seems like something you would like to do, I will be at Daylight Mind at 3PM every Sunday. I will have a notepad and book (probably) and (occasionally) my glasses.
