The topic this month is writer’s choice. I’ve had the hardest time narrowing down what I wanted to focus on. But when Spencer Hill Press recently decided to attend Comic Con in NYC in October and I realized I’m not going to be able to attend, the topic hit me. Friends. I’ve meet so many writers since I’ve become active in the writing community, online and especially at BEA. But it’s more than meeting “writers.” They’ve become friends. A support system. People who understand the demands of this crazy career we’ve chosen (and love). People I can talk to about “voices” in my head and they don’t look at me like I need to be thrown into a padded cell (ha-ha).
So while some of my writer friends will be hanging together in NYC, I’ll be in Texas missing them like I have everyday since BEA.
Because I haven’t just met authors. I’ve met dear friends. And for that, I’m so thankful.
