I received a complimentary copy of the magazine the Writer at the GLVWG writing conference in March. Recently, while tidying my office, I rediscovered the magazine and decided to give it a read. It has some great information, such as articles on writing technique by published authors and tips for promoting and marketing your work. Several articles mentioned rejections and how one should have a thick skin to be in the published writer business, and it started me to thinking about my own skin, which resembles that of a baby mouse more than that of a battle-hardened rhinoceros. It makes me wonder if I’m really prepared for those inevitable letters of rejection. I guess only time will tell.
In other news, I helped to host an awesome luau party over the weekend with my family, complete with leis, reggae music, and rum drinks. I love our parties - they tend to resemble meetings of the United Nations, only with much less political rangling and much more goodwill. Here's to bringing friends from around the globe together for good food and good times!
