Thank you, California Writers Club colleagues, for quoting beloved Maya Angelou!

“You can only become truly accomplished at something you love. Don’t make money your goal. Instead pursue the things you love doing and then do them so well that people can’t take their eyes off of you.”  –Maya Angelou, 1928-2014

Pursuing what we love doing is what is happening at the San Mateo County Fair June 7 to June 14, 2014, at monthly meetings, at open mic, and other events featuring or orchestrated by California Writers Club members.
