Despite my ability to engage in a seemingly never-ending stream of effervescent babble, I am actually quite shy. Pair that trait with chronic procrastination and it is all too easy to socially isolate oneself.
Well, I finally decided to challenge my comfort zone! I joined the Society of Children's Book Writers and Illustrators and attended the first meeting of my local chapter. I am really excited to engage in critique groups, try out webinars and explore all the SCBWI's resources. I also found out I can submit Stealing the Dark Moon for consideration for a Spark Award; why not!
In the words of Paulo Coelho, “If you aren’t pushing your limits, you aren’t going far enough, and you still don’t know who you are.”
Here's to new adventures!
