Yesterday, I attended the VCRW/CFRW sponsored Super Saturday featuring Roxanne St. Claire, Lucienne Diver, and Lorena Streeter. It was a smashing success. It had it all: Excellent Speakers, Cold Reads and Agent Appointments, Basket and Critique Raffles, and finally, an author booksigning. Yes, VCRW is my home chapter, so I am a bit biased. However, it was much more than that.
Here’s my takeaway from yesterday. Writers need other writers. My best friends are writers, and being at an event filled with them nurtures my soul. When our President came down with the flu, members stepped in to help without even being asked. We all worked together, overcame every obstacle, and made sure our Super Saturday was one of the best ever. I came home feeling uplifted, renewed, and ready to kick butt!
My point? Don’t sit home in your writing cave. Join a writers group, attend writing events, connect and share. The winner will be you!

Jan, you are so right about writers needing other writers. As the Pres who came down with the flu (or something equally vile) I can’t tell you how much I appreciated all the members who stepped in to help. It sounds like everyone had an educational, fun-filled time. Thanks for stepping it, and for writing this inspirational post!
Great post, Jan, about an incredible day! It was fabulous and like you, I came away refreshed and renewed and ready to get back to it! We need days like this, with other writers, and this one was awesome! Great…everything. 🙂
I’m happy all went well. Wish I could’ve joined you.
