Exciting Times

I have had an unbelievable week and it's just the beginning. The past week I've been inspired with so much creative energy. Once I shed the fear of letting the world see what's truly inside of me, it was like a cloud lifted off of me. My eyes are open, my mind free, my heart soaring. I do not know why I was so scared to show the world and it really doesn’t matter anymore. Tomorrow is the start of something new. Tomorrow is the book signing of Dreaming in Dallas. For those of you, who know me; know that I've had a long journey to get to this point in my life. I have volunteered myself to help out the authors who are signing. I'm hoping to meet some great people and make new acquaintances. I love meeting creative people. Creative people inspire me to write and sometimes become my inspiration.

Saturday is the true conference. I will attend many different workshops that will help me on my writing career journey. I will post what I've learned to share with you. The best thing about Saturday will be my meeting with Allison Lyons~EDITOR~Harlequin Intrigue. I am excited and nervous at the same time. Butterflies flutter in the pit of my stomach just thinking about it.

I will keep everyone up to date on the conference and my meeting with Allison Lyons. Wish me luck!!!

Fear is only in your mind....Fear is not real

That statement hit me hard like a rock at my DARA meeting Saturday. We chanted "I'm a great writer, I fear nothing." I  cried when I chanted this. I realized I have been procrastinating with my newest project 2012 : Love unexpected. I've also stalled out on  Love and Honor, by not sending it out in the world.  I am scared. Scared of being a disapointment scared of being a failure. But most of all I'm scared of people seeing the real me.  When I write I'm showing the world my heart and soul. If I fail does this mean that I fail myself?

NO it does not! You only fail if you do not try. That was my epiphany over this weekend. The only thing holding me back is myself. Fear is not real!

Do not let fear take control of your life.

The time is near

Dreaming in Dallas is almost upon us. I have been looking forward to this event for about a year now. To be in the same room with so many talented writers will be a truely breath taken event for me.  If you can not attend the conference, please make sure to make it out to the book signing Friday night.  I will be assisting some of the authors during the book signing. This will be a night to remember. I hope to see you all there!

Let's escape

The best thing about writing is the escape I can create from my everyday world. When you read a good romance novel you are drawn into the writers dream world. How lucky am I to be able to explore my own dream world. I love writing scenes where my two lover meet for the first time. How many times have you seen a person that you found yourself attracted to (ie: movie star, co-worker, a guy at the bar you went to last night ;) ). Do you imagined to yourself what you would say to this person to let them know you are interested, the person's reaction, how they would kiss you etc. When you write you can create that world. A private passion between you and that piece of paper.  That's the world of a writer. It's fantasy spilled onto paper. It's a true passion of mine.
