And I remembered turning 21. It was the year I graduated from college. And got married. Same year. Which seems kind of crazy looking back, but it worked for me then. I'll celebrate my 25th wedding anniversary next year. For my daughter, it's also the year she will graduate from college-- and she wants to work in publishing! She's currently an editorial intern, a job she loves, and I hope she lands her dream job following her graduation.
But back to RWA! It was in San Antonio, TX, and we all had a great time. At the Sourcebooks Spotlight, you would have learned that Sourcebooks is looking for extraordinary writing. Paranormal, contemporary, historical... it doesn't matter. Trends don't matter. Great writing, that's what matters. Write the story you want to write, the one only you can tell, and the rest will fall into place.

|Wonderful dinner here with the Sourcebooks team.|
|Sourcebooks treats us like princesses. We went home in horse-drawn carriages.|
Do you remember what you were doing at 21? Were you at RWA? What are some highlights from your conference experience?
