1. Great post Jen! I didn’t get to go to RWA this year, but these posts like these make me feel inspired to get there next year. 🙂

      Hi Renae! Great to see you here – we missed you big time at conference but maybe we will hook up in sunny CA!! So glad you enjoyed it – writers are so inspirational.

    Jen – What a wonderful post! And so very true. There was so much inspiration to be had from the speakers – particularly from Sherilyn’s heart-felt speech. I don’t know how she was able to do that.

    And it was great meeting you there!

    Such a great post and thanks for sharing it!

  4. Wow, Jen. This week has been one of those where no matter what I did to clear time to write minor crises kept popping up to make it near impossible. It’s at times like those when I wonder if I have what it takes. Thanks for this post. It is exactly what I needed to hear today. Never Give Up!

  5. Jen, Glad you had a good conference. Persistence is where it’s at. I’ve seen so many good writers give up and think part of the reason is they can’t seem to find a new path to take but keep running in the same place until they find themselves too deep to get out.

  6. It is awesome that some people recognize what they are destined to do and go after it. I hope I have this type of dedication when I figure out exactly what I am suppose to be doing. 😉

    Good post, Jennifer. Esp. since I missed her speech. But I certainly heard a lot about it. There was another speaker at the Rita ceremony who also gave a memorable speech. A doctor, who’d just won the GH, whose son…well, it was tragic.

  8. Jen,
    I can’t imagine how awesome that must have been! The parts you shared with us really made me think about my own life… the people you described are truly every day hero’s… that’s something to strive for!
    Take care,

    Hi Lisa! I always love when you stop by my blog – I just love everyday heroes that never get written up in the paper and don’t even realize they are heroes. HOpe you are having a great summer
