    Writing Tips & Tidbits From RWA10 Disney World: Straight From The Authors' Mouths

    Morning, All!

    As we discussed in a previous post, what happened at RWA10 Disney World is sooo not stayin' there! Nope. Notta chance. 'Cause I'm tellin' ya all about it right here in D. D. Scott-ville!

    Why?

    Well...in my current Muse Therapy Online Class, we're cussing and discussing Potent Quotables that keep our butts in our chairs and our fingers flying across our keyboards to the next 'The End'.

    And here's the thing...

    Despite the wicked witches and big-ass, apple-hurling trees trying to prevent us writers from getting to Publishing Oz, we can rely on terrific quotes and anecdotes from the romance writing industry's hottest stars to keep our BITCHOK groove skipping along the Yellow Brick Road.







    So here are a few beyond fabulous quotes I picked-up while attending RWA10 at Disney World:


    "You must have an 'F- You' attitude to make it. You must be brave and forward. It's beyond rough." --- Alexandra Sokoloff, Hollywood Screenwriter and Author (http://www.alexandrasokoloff.com)





    "Reader A still loves what Reader B thinks is crap." --- Nora Roberts, NYT's Bestseller (http://www.noraroberts.com)





    "Assume you're going to do well...not tank. It's all about attitude." --- Elizabeth Hoyt, NYT's Bestseller (http://www.elizabethhoyt.com)




    "There are many near death experiences in publishing." --- Jayne Ann Krentz, NYT's Bestseller (http://www.krentz-quick.com)






    "I write because I can't do anything else well!" --- Meg Cabot, NYT's Bestseller (http://www.megcabot.com)







    How's all that for some fun, fabulous, LOL inspiration?!

    I've got tons more from RWA10 Disney World to share with you. So I'll be posting these little gems frequently here in D. D. Scott-ville.

    I have to tell you that I know Alex. AND she is amazing. We spent a full week together in this mansion on Isle of Palm last November. She helped me sooo much with the book I just sold.
