Opening day of the Romantic Novelists’ Association Conference in Sheffield, England. I joined the RNA through their New Writers’ Scheme at the beginning of the year and decided to take the plunge and go to their summer conference.
Anyone who knows me knows that I’m not the kind of person who is comfortable walking into a room of total strangers, so last night the butterflies started. Big time!
As it turns out, I had nothing to fear. Everyone has been extremely friendly.
All kinds of impressions from the first day, but being surrounded by so many successful authors, some with over 60 books published, here’s the one that stands out the most.
They don’t talk about it. They sit down at their laptops and, as the advert says, they just DO it.
