I write because I do love it. There’s nothing more exciting to me than sitting down and creating a great world with heroes and villains. And sometimes in my contemporary world that can be the simplest decision made by a secondary character.
I just came back from RT14 in New Orleans. That’s Romantic Times 2014 – a writer and reader convention. https://www.rtconvention.com/
Besides an editor I had been looking forward to seeing since February blowing myself and her other appointments off in a DIVA mood I had a lot of fun.
I met other aspiring authors, other authors, and other readers. One reader was there from Australia and she goes to volunteer each year along with stack her suitcase full of books. She goes for the experience at RT.
Despite the kerfuffle over the indie author room which is a pretty serious mistake on RT’s part there was great appreciation for the authors and their books.
I also took part in Cherry Adair’s Pre-Conference Plotting Workshop. Let me tell you that she knows her stuff. And, she has this great personality of no holds barred “let’s get it done” attitude that was completely inspiring. Within one day I had fixed holes in my manuscript that I am implementing this week with my freelance editor. http://cherryadair.com/
Here’s a pic. I highly recommend RT for readers and writers. Let’s hope they don’t isolate the Indies next year as I will be one.
