I attended my first meeting at the Toronto Romance Writers today – and Oh, my! What a difference from my regular Writers’ Guild.
Positive! Happy! Bubbly! People actually came up and talked to me. And even more surprising listened! And encouraged!
So much better, so much more encouraging than the old fogies at the other group who want poetry, defining moments and memoirs! And no nasty comments about how romance books are written for people with a Grade 8 education.
Even more satisfying — the speaker actually talked about how to write, rather than simply wanting to sell her book.
TRW I’m staying!
