This week I had the opportunity to attend the Romance Writers of America National Conference in Anaheim, CA. What I learned was much too vast to put in any one post or even several posts. However I will recap the highlights that will stay with me for a lifetime.
- I learned that best-selling, award-winning authors work hard for their success. They work harder than most any professional I know. [I learned I don’t work nearly hard enough.]
- I learned that romance authors are the most generous and giving of souls. [This was not a new revelation, but to experience it en masse was humbling.]
- I learned that giving and receiving a simple “Thank You” with a smile is very, very important. [“Thank You” is a woefully inadequate phrase for the gratitude I feel for those who gave so much to me this past week.]
When it’s my turn, I hope I can give back at least a portion of what I’ve received from the amazing authors I met this past week.
Did you have a week of learning?
