Road to Writing
When I first started, I thought all you had to do is write a book. Can you say *naive*, boys and girls? Join me on my journey as a pre- published writer looking to see my name on the cover of a book. I'll talk about all the bumps, bruises, joys and frustrations I encounter along the way.

I guess I'm a joiner!

I'm talking about RWA (Romance Writers of America) chapters.

At the M&M Conference, I was reacqainted with a GRW (Georgia Romance Writers) member I had met at one of the previous GRW meetings. We talked a bit about online resources for writers, and I ended up giving her a contact card so she could e-mail me. She did, and asked about the online RWA chapters we'd discussed briefly. So, being the strange type of person I am, I did one better than tell her the names. I did a little research and came up with links.

Then, I went even further. My curiosity about these online chapters rose, and I visited those links, and read about the chapters. And yes, I ended up joining.

So now, I write to you as a proud member of RWA, GRW, From the Heart, and the RWA Online Chapter.

These two online chapters have the added benefit of 24/7 accessibility -- I don't have to make myself presentable to attend meetings. I like that. From the Heart (FTH) uses a mailing list for their communications, so the information from other chapter members comes straight to my e-mailbox. RWA Online, on the other hand, uses a message board.

I've found tremendous amounts of information through both chapters, not to mention networks of kind, helpful and supportive people.

Another added benefit of both chapters is the online workshops. So many!

Can you tell I'm excited about the new chapters I've joined?

I often manage to plunge myself into the TMI Pit of Despair, but in this case, I'll take anything I can learn.

  • I still need to get out there and join these. Maybe next pay week.

  • Hey Lynn, where've you been?

    Nope, I didn't intentionally rhyme like that. Sometimes things just happen. Hope all is well. Haven't heard from you in a while.

  • LOL at your rhyme, YankeeBob!

    I'm back, was just temorarily buried. I'll try to do better in the future. Promise. :)
