Why write?

At our last romance chapter meeting, one of our members asked the authors at large why we wrote. It’s a good question and one I’ve been asked many times.

I’ve tried to come up with something profound or at least tangible that you can touch and feel. But like the craft itself, writing is many times organic. We do it because there’s something inside us driving us to tell a story.

Post RT

The RT Booklovers Convention in Chicago was awesome! I loved connecting with readers, editors, booksellers, and friends and peers for the week. The events were fabulous. Thanks to all the readers who looked me up to collect swag and books.

But even if I was working from home or had the morning off, I’d still be chained to the desk.

I just turned in my book to my editor in London (fingers crossed she doesn’t think it’s dreck) and now I’m doing my income taxes. Oh joy. Not!

Thankfully I’ve just about got it all together for the tax lady … Read the rest »
