The transcript below covers the complete #litchat conversation on July 15, 2009. The order appears sequentially from the first post to the final post. Topic was open discussion Faith, Religion and Mysticism.

LitChat Welcome to #litchat. We’re continuing the discussion about Faith, Religion & Mysticism in fiction. Join us and introduce yourself
latta some good tips for the tome. RT @kottkedotorg How to read Infinite Jest http://bit.ly/3AMg5 #infsum #litchat #reading #fiction
VanessaDobbs Hi I’m an avid reader #litchat
maggiedana Hi everyone. Look forward to more lively discussion on faith, religion, & mysticism in fiction. Why is mysticism so hard to type? #litchat
mdbenoit Hi all, I’m here. Looking forward to the discussion #litchat
LitChat @latta Hi, we’re beginning our scheduled LitChat. If you use #litchat hashtag, please keep on topic during chat time. Thanks. #litchat
LitChat Q1 How is mysticism different from magic? Is the distinction clear in fiction? #litchat
maggiedana Be fun to hear from writers at #RWA09. Are any of you plugged into LitChat? if not, come and join us. #litchat
zumayabooks @LitChat The difference between mysticism and magic is the difference between a recipe and dinner. #litchat
maggiedana Q1 Susan Howatch delves, brilliantly, into mysticism in her C of E series. Even makes *me* a believer, for a moment or two. #litchat
mdbenoit @zumayabooks Are you saying magic is the result of applying mysticism? #litchat
latta @LitChat sorry. not in the chat. will refrain from that hash for an hour.
mdbenoit To me, mysticism is the search for spiritual truth. Magic is illusion #litchat
zumayabooks @mdbenoit A recipe is a guide to achieving the finished product. However, you may choose to vary it on the way. #litchat
maggiedana @crimeficreader We’re in #LitChat right now. Do you have time to join in?
bibliolatrist @litchat re Q1: mysticism seeks to achieve a state of being, which magic seeks to achieve a more practical end #litchat
zumayabooks @mdbenoit Likewise, mysticism is the philosophy of seeking what isn’t knowable by the senses or logic. #litchat
abookinhand RT @mdbenoit: To me, mysticism is the search for spiritual truth. Magic is illusion #litchat
zumayabooks @mdbenoit In the process, you may discover things that, to the “real world,” seem to transcend science and reality. Magic. #litchat
CarolyBurnsBass Q1 Magic today is sleight-of-hand, parlor tricks, designed to entertain. Mysticism is internal and external spiritual phenomena. #litchat
kashicat I’d say mysticism is all about one’s inner spiritual world, while magic is producing effects in physical world. #litchat
redRavine RT: zumayabooks @LitChat The difference between mysticism and magic is the difference between a recipe and dinner.
CarolyBurnsBass @maggiedana Based on your glowing recommendation, I am going to look into Susan Howatch. Is she readily available in the US? #litchat
marybrebner IMO, mysticism=faith & belief in a higher power(s); magic usually has tangible results, which may/may not come from that belief #litchat
mdbenoit @marybrebner One doesn’t necessarily flow from the other. Not all mystics perform magic, surely? #litchat
rj_anderson @kashicat Well put; that would be my definition of the difference between magic and mysticism as well. #litchat
LitChat @latta Thanks. Just trying to keep the feed clear for the scheduled chats.
maggiedana @CarolyBurnsBass Yes … I have all her books, all bought in the U.S. Start with book 1, Glittering Images. Ignore silly titles! #litchat
kashicat @mdbenoit Whether magic is real or not depends who you talk to. I don’t believe it is, but I have friends who are certain it is. #litchat
maggiedana I see Twitter is snacking on some of my posts … yet again. It must be really hungry. #litchat
marybrebner @mdbenoit agreed. magic & mysticism do not always go hand in hand. Can be at odds, too. #litchat
billbrandon @LitChat Mysticism is the awareness of the divine. Magic seeks to make things happen, by manipulating the forces of nature or the divine.
kashicat In literature, I’d suspect that magic might appear more often in fantasy, and mysticism in straight fiction. #litchat
rj_anderson I associate mysticism with a certain *kind* of religious faith/belief — an emotional or intuitive or visionary approach. #litchat
redRavine @marybrebner Good distinction between coming from a spiritual belief or something that may not come from the spiritual. #litchat
abookinhand I don’t think it’s always clear in fiction. Characters tend to expect magical outcome when trying to be spiritual. #litchat
abookinhand Sort of like real life. #litchat
LitChat If you don’t see one of your tweets in the feed, RT your post with RP (re-post). Next question coming up in five minutes. #litchat
mdbenoit @abookinhand In a way, expecting a magical outcome is often what faith is #litchat
redRavine RT @abookinhand I don’t think it’s always clear in fiction. Characters tend to expect magical outcome when trying to be spiritual. #litchat
kashicat @rj_anderson I’d agree with that definition too. 🙂 #litchat
CarolyBurnsBass Yes! RT @kashicat: In literature, Id suspect that magic might appear more often in fantasy, and mysticism in straight fiction. #litchat
abookinhand @mdbenoit true…so having a clear distinction between the two is difficult. #litchat
kashicat @abookinhand I’d agree. I guess I was thinking of expectations, but people IRL also expect magical outcomes so that doesn’t work #litchat
rj_anderson Agreed. RT @kashicat: In literature, Id suspect that magic might appear more often in fantasy, and mysticism in straight fiction. #litchat
mdbenoit There is a diff. between real life and fiction when it comes to mysticism and magic #litchat
abookinhand man times mysitcism isn’t even based on anything real but one’s assumption of what is real. #litchat Creates many problems.
latta @LitChat no prob. if i were in the chat, i would appreciate order over chaos. they’re not proprietary,. but crosspollinating hashes no good.
maggiedana @rj_anderson Picoult handles mysticism well in CHANGE OF HEART. Had hard time getting into story, but once I did, I was hooked. #litchat
billbrandon @LitChat Mystics seldom if ever practice magic. I would think that someone directly aware of God would be too over-awed. We are puny.
billbrandon @LitChat And no, I don’t believe in magic. I do believe in God.
rj_anderson “Expect” is a bit strong; “hope for” might be more accurate. I pray believing miracles CAN happen, but I also know they’re v. rare. #litchat
mdbenoit @abookinhand Disagree. Mysticism implies a search for something #litchat
rj_anderson @maggiedana Thanks for the rec. Haven’t read Picoult, and tend to shy away from mysticism, but may give it a try. #litchat
mdbenoit @rj_anderson Prayer does not, IMO, equal mysticism #litchat
abookinhand Faith can be based on a feeling about something. Religion is based on something more practical, structured. #litchat
thewaryeye Magic is trick, a device, an illusion. Mysticism is a religious experience, an inspiration. #litchat
rj_anderson Isn’t mysticism more a state of mind, a search for inner knowledge or enlightenment on an intensely personal level? #litchat
LitChat RT @billbrandon: Mysticism is awareness of divine. Magic seeks to make things happen by manipulating forces of nature or divine. #litchat
abookinhand @maggiedana I love her books and haven’t read that one yet. I’ll have to get it. #litchat
LitChat RT @billbrandon: @LitChat And no, I don’t believe in magic. I do believe in God. #litchat
mdbenoit RT @rj_anderson: Isnt mysticism more a state of mind, a search for inner knowledge or enlightenment on an intensely personal level? #litchat
rj_anderson @mdbenoit Agreed. One can pray mystically, or be mystical without prayer, or pray without being mystical. #litchat
abookinhand RT @LitChat: RT @billbrandon: @LitChat And no, I don’t believe in magic. I do believe in God. #litchat
WendyCC2009 RT @abookinhand: Faith can be based on a feeling about something. Religion is based on something more practical, structured. #litchat
abookinhand Magic is fun to believe it but it’s an empty shell. #litchat
VanessaDobbs agreeRT@thewaryeye Magic is trick, a device, an illusion. Mysticism is a religious experience, an inspiration. #litchat
LitChat RP Q2 Does In literature, how does Faith differ from Religion and Mysticism? #litchat
mdbenoit The true mystics are very rare #litchat
maggiedana @abookinhand Hard to get into. Dead child in very beginning. A real turn-off for me, but I’m glad I persevered with reading it. #litchat
VanessaDobbs Faith is internal beliefs, religion has structure which is followed #litchat
abookinhand @mdbenoit That’s true. #litchat
ecurbmp Q2: To me, faith is personal belief vs religion is a group of people with shared beliefs. #litchat
abookinhand @maggiedana Her books tend to tackle difficult or off beat subjects. That’s what I like about her. #litchat
maggiedana @jodipicoult Join us in #LitChat, subject: mysticism in fiction. I’m recommending CHANGE OF HEART. You have fans in here! #litchat
billbrandon Faith is the essence of religion. It isn’t different from it. Can have mysticism w/o religion. #litchat
abookinhand @maggiedana Thanks for asking @jodipicoult to join in the convo. #litchat
redRavine Q2: Depends. For some, Faith means religious belief. For others, it is mystical, a simple belief in something bigger than we are. #litchat
ecurbmp @billbrandon Faith might be what creates religion, but it’s possible to have faith without religion, imho. #litchat
abookinhand RT @billbrandon: Faith is the essence of religion. It isn’t different from it. Can have mysticism w/o religion. #litchat
rj_anderson Religion is a system of worship and practice; faith is the belief on which that system is built and also that which sustains it. #litchat
VanessaDobbs @maggiedana on my TBR soon pile #litchat
kashicat What is meant by this? I’m curious. RT @abookinhand: Magic is fun to believe it but it’s an empty shell. #litchat
rj_anderson …ideally speaking, that is. It is possible to have religion without faith, where people just go through the motions of ritual. #litchat
LitChat Yay… Twitter is flying again today, though I’ve seen some posts lost in the @TweetDeck feed. #litchat
mdbenoit Q2: Mysticism might be found a lot in non fic, such as biographies of greats, like Ghandi #litchat
kashicat Q2: religion would be the organized form. Faith would be commitment *to* the belief system. #litchat
abookinhand There isn’t a clear cut definition for faith because it is such a personal choice based on every moment leading up to now. #litchat
LitChat Next (and final) question in five minutes. Stand by. #litchat
kashicat RT @ecurbmp: @billbrandon Faith might be what creates religion, but it’s possible to have faith without religion, imho. #litchat [Agree]
abookinhand @kashicat Because magic by itself is an illusion. It’s not real. Faith, if truly believed in is truly tangible. You can feel it. #litchat
LitChat RP Twitter is flying again today, though I’ve seen some posts lost in the @TweetChat feed. #litchat #litchat
rj_anderson “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1) #litchat
abookinhand RT @rj_anderson: “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” (Hebrews 11:1) #litchat
billbrandon @ecurbmp In general terms, faith without religion is possible, I agree. I’ve known at least one person who fit that (my dad). #litchat
redRavine Q2: Faith is a component of religion and mysticism. But it can also stand alone without them. It is connected to hope. #litchat
abookinhand @kashicat I guess it depends on the experiences we’ve had. Again…that’s why faith’s definition can so varied. #litchat
marybrebner @kmoutzen v. true. Hey, you should check out #litchat they’re talking about faith, mysticism & magic. Interesting discussion. 🙂
abookinhand @kashicat I’m just saying that is where the problem lies…trying to have one answer. We all have to find it on our own terms. #litchat
rj_anderson “Pure… religion… is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, & to keep oneself unstained by the world.” (Jas. 1:27) #litchat
abookinhand @billbrandon I agree with you on that. #litchat
rj_anderson Not to take over the discussion with Bible quotes, I just think those are helpful definitions. 🙂 #litchat
LitChat Q3 Let’s discuss some novels that have distinctive themes/topics of 1) Religion 2) Faith and 3) Mysticism. #litchat
billbrandon @rj_anderson Interesting you’d quote Heb 11:1. We just had a discussion about that. Some Prot denoms use a different interpretation #litchat
mdbenoit Mary Doria Russell’s The Sparrow and Children of God are definitely mysticism #litchat
maggiedana Susan Howatch’s Church of England series, starting with Book 1, Glittering Images. I’m a major skeptic, but she had me enthralled. #litchat
abookinhand For Faith…@jodiipicoult ‘s Keeping Faith is pretty good with that. #litchat
billbrandon @litchat Gotta go, unfortunately. Interesting #litchat, wish I could stay.
bostonbibliophl …joining the party late. #litchat
maggiedana RT @abookinhand: For Faith…@jodipicoult s Keeping Faith is pretty good with that. #litchat
mdbenoit @maggiedana Just booked Glittering Images from the public library. Will let you know! #litchat
ecurbmp I don’t have a lot of experience with most religious books, but I have read books where “religion” itself is a theme. #litchat
thewaryeye Faith is a system of beliefs, a code of beliefs, mysticism has always been a divine inspiration. #litchat
rj_anderson And Lois McMaster Bujold also examines faith closely in her Chalion books, esp. PALADIN OF SOULS. #litchat
kashicat Many Robertson Davies novels explore the idea of faith related to the psyche, & how we organize our world around faith images #litchat
bostonbibliophl i’m in religious book club. v. interesting. christian, muslim, jewish women reading religious books. lots of faith talk! #litchat
maggiedana @mdbenoit Cool. I’ll be interested to get your take on it. I first read it 25 years ago. Must dig out and re-read. #litchat
bostonbibliophl @kashicat what religion does she write about? #litchat
kashicat @bostonbibliophl Do you mean Robertson Davies? #litchat
ecurbmp In Fantasy, I enjoyed: @BrandonSandrson ‘s _Elantris_, it explores what happens when “Gods” fall, and religious society collapses. #litchat
rj_anderson Many books I’ve read portray religion as opposed to (or evidence against) faith — oppressive, fanatical, legalistic, hypocritical. #litchat
kashicat @bostonbibliophl Or were you asking someone else, and thought it was me? 🙂 #litchat
maggiedana Mysticism doesn’t crop up till Howatch’s 2nd book in series. First book is about faith and how it can get lost. #litchat
vasilly Jonathon Keat’s Tales of the Unknown is a mixture of faith, mysticism, and religion. #litchat
ecurbmp @rj_anderson Me too. The good ones try to present faith as being ideal, rather than just using an organization for power, I think. #litchat
maggiedana @vasilly That just about covers today’s topic, in a nutshell! #litchat
thebookaddict Anne Rice now considers herself a “Christian” author. However, Menmoch the Devil (5th in Vamp Chron) was very religiously themed #litchat
bostonbibliophl @rj_anderson I’ve noticed that too- very neg portrayal. #litchat
rj_anderson Francesco X. Stork’s MARCELO IN THE REAL WORLD is a thoughtful, nuanced take on religion and faith, among other things. #litchat
bostonbibliophl @thebookaddict that’s a loaded label- and a marketing strategy too. #litchat
kashicat @ecurbmp And in fantasy, of course you’ve got the Big One, Lord of the Rings, whose spiritual images came from Catholicism #litchat
hrt15 @LitChat god/devil in a reality show:you’re all screwed-get over it. corporate pubs finding way to turn to thriller mash-up det. stories
mdbenoit @bostonbibliophl Re. Anne Rice? Totally agree #litchat
maggiedana I hope all these authors we’re recommending appreciate the plugs. #litchat
CarolyBurnsBass Q3 SECRET LIFE OF BEES is has themes of both faith and mysticism. #litchat
ecurbmp @kashicat Yeap. Most fantasy finds inspirational sources from different religions and mythologies. #litchat
rj_anderson Lots of YA novels about teens escaping oppressive religious bkgrds or having their faith destroyed by education/experience. #litchat
mdbenoit @kashicat As well The Chronicles of Narnia #litchat
thebookaddict @bostonbibliophl you may be right. Although she has refound her faith, she is still very liberal…..#litchat
kashicat Anne Rice was interesting pre-Xtian too. Her books always had q’s about death, afterlife, soul, redemption etc #litchat
hrt15 @LitChat “harry potter and barnyard animals’. just discovered sequel
bostonbibliophl @rj_anderson MARCELO sounds wonderful- just looked itup. thanks for suggesting. #litchat
kashicat @mdbenoit Yep. I grew up on Narnia and LotR. 🙂 #litchat
mdbenoit One of my faves, Lowry’s The Giver, is also about mysticism #litchat
thebookaddict @bostonbibliophl not saying a liberal can’t be a Christian (I am one), but I’m not fanatical about religion…I just have faith #litchat
bostonbibliophl @kashicat I picked my saints name after Narnia character Lucy! #litchat
ecurbmp @rj_anderson Isn’t it funny that those who portray religious bkgs as a good thing tend to be in Xtian fic instead? #litchat
redRavine Good example. RT @CarolyBurnsBass: Q3 SECRET LIFE OF BEES is has themes of both faith and mysticism. #litchat
kashicat @bostonbibliophl Aw, that’s sweet! #litchat
bostonbibliophl @ecurbmp and it makes sense that ppl who sell themselves/their bks as Xtian LIKE it #litchat
bostonbibliophl @kashicat yeah, i’m a nerd 🙂 #litchat
bostonbibliophl @redRavine also BEE SEASON has mysticism & faith #litchat
abookinhand @rj_anderson I enjoyed your tweets on litchat
kashicat I was going to ask “what about bks portraying spiritual sense in animals” & now can’t think of any, heh. #litchat
CarolyBurnsBass Q3 Most of Shakespeare’s work is rife with mysticism, magic and faith. #litchat
mdbenoit @ecurbmp Have you read religious books by writers from other faiths? Can you compare? #litchat
maggiedana @bostonbibliophl Hmm, is there something religious about bees? Just saw two bees shagging on my patio. #litchat
mdbenoit Yes! RT @CarolyBurnsBass: Q3 Most of Shakespeares work is rife with mysticism, magic and faith. #litchat
abookinhand @kashicat I enjoyed tweeting with you at litchat. 🙂
bostonbibliophl @maggiedana heretic! 😉 #litchat
rj_anderson @kashicat WATERSHIP DOWN, of course! Mystical as all get out. #litchat
mdbenoit @maggiedana LOL! #litchat
kashicat @abookinhand Thanks, same to you! 🙂 #litchat
redRavine Agreed. I think I saw the film. RT @bostonbibliophl also BEE SEASON has mysticism & faith. #litchat
ecurbmp @mdbenoit I’m not religious, so I try to be non-judgmental when picking a book, but rarely target *religious* books specifically. #litchat
kashicat @rj_anderson I was going to suggest Watership Down too but didn’t think a/o here was old enuf to have read it, LOL #litchat
mdbenoit About magic, the Harry Potter books! (Had to mention them) #litchat
kashicat RT @kvn1234: @kashicat book with a spiritual sense for an animal: Paul Auster’s Timbuktu #litchat
CarolyBurnsBass Q3 Adding to the Shakespeare theme, THE STORY OF EDGAR SAWTELLE is a contemporary mirror of HAMLET, full of mysticism. #litchat
redRavine RT @CarolyBurnsBass: Q3 Most of Shakespeares work is rife with mysticism, magic and faith. #litchat
mdbenoit @ecurbmp Try He, She and It, by Marge Piercy. Awesome sf fable about the Golem #litchat
VanessaDobbs I am RT @kashicat I was going to suggest Watership Down too but didn’t think a/o here was old enuf to have read it, #litchat #litchat
CarolyBurnsBass Q3 The Harry Potter books, of course, have otherworldly magic vs illusion. #litchat
ecurbmp @mdbenoit Sweet, thanks! #litchat
maggiedana @CarolyBurnsBass Haven’t some faiths (churches?) banned Potter books? #litchat
kashicat @VanessaDobbs Excellent! 🙂 #litchat
mdbenoit @VanessaDobbs Unfortunately, I’m right up there with you. 🙂 #litchat
kashicat @maggiedana Oh, you betcha. Tried to get them out of libraries, burned them, you name it. #litchat
kashicat @mdbenoit @VanessaDobbs My people!! #litchat
CarolyBurnsBass @maggiedana I think some fundie churches have banned the HP series. #litchat
KateMessner @rj_anderson ONCE WAS LOST by @sarazarr fits this description perfectly. It’s brilliant (comes out in October). #litchat
rj_anderson @kashicat And missed Philip Pullman, who really DID write anti-Christian kids’ books, almost completely. IRONY HO. #litchat
rj_anderson @KateMessner I thought of mentioning that! Glad you did. Haven’t read ONCE WAS LOST yet, but looking fwd to it. #litchat
kashicat @rj_anderson That’s true, Pullman has another type of mysticism. #litchat
ecurbmp Do you think faith or religion affects your writing? (Just throwing that out there.) #litchat
mdbenoit @ecurbmp Not at all, either way. #litchat
kashicat @ecurbmp Most recent novel (none published, alas) is about all relig being regulated by govt, & what spiritual life wd be like then #litchat
maggiedana @ecurbmp For me, reverse is true. My lack of faith affects my writing. #litchat
ecurbmp @kashicat That sounds like a really fun idea to explore, actually. Modern setting? #litchat
rj_anderson My 2nd book WAYFARER has a young hero who deeply doubts his faith, but his missionary parents & home church are not at fault. #litchat
maggiedana @mdbenoit Cheers, Dom. See you on Monday. Should be great week of LitChat. Fountain of Youth in Fiction.
kashicat @ecurbmp Setting equiv. to today — 200 yrs in future, after big wars so technology etc is much like today. #litchat
rj_anderson Mind you, all this is rather secondary to said hero being pursued by homicidal faeries… I told you I don’t like being preachy. 🙂 #litchat
LitChat Great question, RT @ecurbmp Do you think faith or religion affects your writing? #litchat
kashicat @ecurbmp I explored how source of great relig. beauty & glory is also source of relig. horrors Yet regulation wd kill glory too #litchat
kashicat @rj_anderson You’re equal opportunity when you write ab/religion, spirituality, magic, etc, eh? #litchat
LitChat Once again, we’re over our 1-hour scheduled chat, but we own this chatroom, right? Feel free to carry on–great chat again today. #litchat
yudel Can I chime in to recommend a a tri-faith novel? A Delightful Compendium of Consolation http://bit.ly/18nFNe #litchat
ecurbmp @kashicat Lol. @rj_anderson That’s the best way to do it, imho. 🙂 #litchat
kashicat @LitChat Seriously. Who can cover this type of topic in just an hour? <g> #litchat
rj_anderson @kashicat Isn’t that what fantasy is all about? A little here, a little there… eye of newt, toe of frog… #litchat
redRavine Signing off. Thanks all. Engaging chat on mysticism, faith, religion. #litchat
VanessaDobbs @Litchat thanks once again for great chat.Although Ididn’t say a lot have found it very interesting.Thanks everybody. See you Fri #litchat
rj_anderson RT a good Q from @ecurbmp: Do you think faith or religion affects your writing? #litchat
kashicat @rj_anderson Bwa! As long as it’s internally consistent! #litchat
kashicat @yudel That looks really, really good! Thanks for the recommendation! #litchat
ecurbmp @LitChat I’m glad I found #litchat on Monday! I hope no one minds me trying to become semi-regular (when I have time at work!) Thx! #litchat
rj_anderson @kashicat You would not believe how hard I worked to figure out how to fit faeries into a Biblical cosmology. For the book, I mean. #litchat
CarolyBurnsBass When faith is real, how could it not affect your writing? Writers are influenced by things both internal and external. #litchat
rj_anderson @kashicat And after all that I think it’s mentioned in maybe one short paragraph of the whole thing? 😀 #litchat
kashicat @ecurbmp I feel the same way. 🙂 Regarding becoming a regular. #litchat
kashicat @rj_anderson I can imagine it was very complicated. And just one paragraph?? Yet your world will *feel* deeper bc of that. #litchat
LitChat @ecurbmp Of course you’re welcome here! Check out blog for upcoming topics: https://litchat.net/coming-up. #litchat
ecurbmp @rj_anderson This reminds me of advice I read once about “the book being the tip of the iceberg of research”. #litchat
thebookaddict @ecurbmp RT “I’m glad I found #litchat on Monday! I hope no one minds me trying to become semi-regular” Me too…I try not to miss #litchat
LitChat Be sure to come back on Friday at 4/et for guest host @CarleenBrice, author of two novels with religious and mystical themes. #litchat
rj_anderson @ecurbmp That is really, really true about research. #litchat
kashicat @ecurbmp @rj_anderson Guy Gavriel Kay once told me ab all the background he knew about his Fionavar world that was never in the bks #litchat
rj_anderson @kashicat I hope so! Thanks. (Also, just checked out your blog, hello neighbour!) #litchat
LitChat And remember, we’re giving a way a signed copy of @CarleenBrice’s ORANGE MINT AND HONEY to a lucky litpeep drawn at random. #litchat
rj_anderson Right, I’m off! Thanks to everybody for a great chat! #litchat
ecurbmp @rj_anderson Research is supposed to be part of the fun though, right? Lol. #litchat
ecurbmp @LitChat Thank you! #litchat
LitChat @thebookaddict: We are glad you’re here and look forward to you being a regular. LitChat is an open community of book lovers. #litchat
maggiedana Writing is like quilting. Lots of leftover stuff when you’re done. I have enough unused quilt blocks to cover my roof. #litchat
kashicat Thanks for the great chat! #litchat
ecurbmp RT @kashicat: Thanks for the great chat! #litchat
