This was the first year I attended RWA not as a newbie (well still a newbie) but as a participating author. It was awesome, and also very anticlimactic. Think about reaching a mountain peak and realizing you had a whole range full of mountains yet to scale. That kind of feeling.
It reminds me of something my friend said to me a few weeks ago. Writing isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon and when it comes right down to it, you just have to keep on writing (running)
I had a blast at RWA don’t get me wrong. I am in so many chapters now that I had a party every night. One of my best friends was able to join me and we had ladies nights! See below!
Yet the whole experience also reminded me of the sheer grind of writing. The constant social media. And I am just a baby. I don’t know how the bigguns do it!
That also reminds me of another saying though. You never get nothing from working, even if you learn a life lesson, you still learned.
So while I enjoyed the gorgeous city that is #SanDiego, I also learned how much more I have to accomplish (which is not a bad thing)
What did you learn today?
