And so, when that first draft is finished where can we go?

To add to the difficulty, few people truly understand a writers heart, which is fraught with doubt. Finding individuals with the ability to tear down the work while building the writer is rare. I'm so fortunate to have a crazy troupe of funny souls that are warm, engaging, and a weird combo of brutal honesty and kindness. And, believe it or not, I found them all on twitter.
We've talked, tweeted, texted, and messaged for a few years now, but this past weekend we surprised Izzie for her birthday and went to Nashville for our first writers conference. The weekend was an adventure, to say the least. Heartfelt conversations were had by all, and we talked shop for hours. I can't imagine what writing would be like without Izzie, Cali, and Dizz, and I'm so blessed to call them my friends.
