Message me here with your address and I'll get those books sent out to you.
For the rest of you, here is an encouraging message from our President-Elect, Cindy Williams:
Writers Challenges! I love them! They are great! You accomplish tons!
Excessive use of exclamation marks! You have to know the rules to break the rules.
Writing is a lonely world. Sure there may be family running all around us. There may be patrons at the library shuffling quietly by or ruffling pages in books. The phone may be ringing, the washer and drying beeping, but it all boils down to diving into our computer all alone.
As a writer, we no longer have teachers calling for writing assignments. We don't have parents giving us chores to complete. We don't have a boss telling us to get this thing done. We have only ourselves and sitting our bottoms down and making magic flow from our fingertips. As writers, we are sometimes tough task masters, and at other times we are too soft on ourselves and give in to our own flimsy excuses.
A Writers Challenge meets these built in difficulties of being a writers.
If we jump in with both feet and report each day, we have a place of accountability. We support each other. We are in this together. We are no longer alone. Melinda Carroll, our ANWA Event Chair, set this up and not only cheers us on, but offers incentives to keep us excited, involved and motivated. Thank you Melinda for taking your time to run this.
We are ANWA! See us write!
Cindy R. Williams
