Today my local chapter of Romance Writers of America, Diamond State Romance Authors, put on a program for aspiring writers at the library branch where I happen to work and I attended. Right about now you're saying , "so? Big whoop!" To which I reply, "Please see previous paragraph."
For me it was a step forward into becoming the self possessed author I hope to one day be. Yes, I know I am about to be published and I remember well the path trod to get to this point. As a result I tend to stand in awe of anyone who has made it here as well as those brave enough to try.
Guess what? These women were all well spoken, skilled in their craft and willing to share their knowledge with us mere mortals. I don't really know why I am still surprised at this juncture, but I am. They were one and all gracious and kind. I am talking the likes of Delilah Devlin,
Myla Jackson, Layla Chase, and Elle James.
Writers are people too and some of the nicest ones around.
Thanks DSRA for a wonderful program! You may have a new recruit...
