|Debby (L) visits with Love Inspired author Missy Tippens (R)|
Ever wonder where writers meet and what they talk about when they get together? Often they gather at local or regional writers' meetings. Last Saturday, I joined with other members of my Georgia Romance Writers' chapter for our monthly get-together and presentation.
We arrive at 9 AM for breakfast at an Atlanta-area hotel, and a business meeting follows the meal. Our chapter president shares information on upcoming events, and board members discuss various projects with which GRW is involved.
A regular part of the format is when we share good news. The sale of a book, writing awards, even rejections are celebrated. How can a rejection be good news? Because it means the member is submitting his or her work to editors and agents. Just because a story didn't sell this time, doesn't mean it won't the next time, and as we all know, a manuscript can't sell if it hasn't been submitted.

Happy reading! Happy writing!
Wishing you abundant blessings,
Faith with an edge...cross my heart!
