Writing Wednesday is here again. I really enjoyed last week's comments about What a Writer Needs.
I agree with all of you. I couldn't find it when I looked back at the post, so maybe this comment was emailed to me, but she said a writer needs to write! How true that is, many people say they want to write or they are going to write some day, but they never get around to writing - they keep putting it off.
That advice goes with submissions, also. I used to bring my rejection slips to our writing group's meetings. I was getting praised on my rejection slips. They said, "Well, at least you are submitting."
You never know if your work has a chance unless you submit your manuscripts. You may get rejection letters or never hear from the publisher, but at least you gave your work a chance by submitting. Later on down the road you won't have to say, "Oh, if only I had submitted my stories."
Unlike most of last year, I have been submitting this year. I am giving my stories a fighting chance.
West Virginia Writers are having their annual writer's conference on June 10, 11 and 12 at Cedar Lakes, WV.
I am so lucky - Cedar Lakes is only a few miles down the road from my house. I just sent in my registration form on Saturday. You can go here and check out the schedule, the workshop presenters, and all the details.
Cedar Lakes is a beautiful place to have a conference. It even has a covered bridge!
It is a very popular place in our area for church picnics, family reunions and get togethers of all kinds.
I've been visiting there ever since I was young.

There is still time to register if anyone is interested in going.
Happy Writing and don't forget to submit your manuscripts!
