Just For a Moment

I've been thinking for a while what I wanted to write about for this post and I've actually written and erased a couple different things (sound familiar? :) ) but I keep coming back to doing your own thing.

When I first started writing, I didn't know anyone who wrote a book or even wrote stories for fun. It was a little thing of my own. As I've written, I've gone to workshops, conferences and retreats and met many of you amazing authors who have helped me refine and redefine my writing skills. I have had amazing critique partners, editors and sprinting buddies, brainstorming sessions and cheering each other on from the sidelines of facebook.

Four years ago when we started iWN we first thought that we wanted a place where the basics of writing were taught and shared, but also a place where everyone is welcome, regardless of religion, level or location. I am so appreciative of all you who have made it a great place to be. The comments, participation, and recommendations are exactly what we hoped we would have when we first started.

Authors are a weird bunch of amazing people. :) We build characters and grow to care about them so much we fret over how best to kill them off, and places that don't exist except in our minds--that we really wish we could go visit. But I'm happy that this tribe has my same weird vibe. :)
