In a month I will attend the Historical Novel Writers’ Conference in Portland. I was going to say that I’ve never done this before, but that is only partially true.
I haven’t attended a large writing conference before; however, I have pitched my writing A LOT! I have received many rejections and a few small successes. I have made up additional stories about my limited success — called excuses.
Now I am like a meteor shooting across the sky, ready to burn itself out in flash. When? I don’t know and neither do you. So we’d better get on with it.
Knowing that I am closer to death than to birth gives me great courage and energy. I’ve seen this in friends and now I understand it better. If not now, when? I guess today is the day.
Have a good one!
