I would like to thank everyone who came out to MVRWA’s Book Lover’s Event this year.
We had an amazing turnout!
Many impatient attendees, shocked us by showing up early and forming a line before we opened the doors at 10:00 am. You came early, and stayed to the very end.
I was reminded, again, of a couple of points that I think can be easily forgotten as we writer tirelessly tap, tap, tap away on the keyboard.
1) If not for the readers, there would be no reason for us to do what we do. Thank you to all of those who long to read what we write, and let us know what you enjoy.
2) Many, many readers are writers waiting to be born. Toward the end of the day, the moderator of our second Q&A panel asked the question, “How many people here are aspiring writers.” Discounting members of our group, at least twenty hands went in the air. This was reinforced by all the great questions that were asked to both panels.
I also have one more big thanks to all of our members, who pitched in and made the event run seamlessly smooth. All of you rocked it out!!
