Last month I received my welcome letter as a new member of the International Thriller Writers (ITW) Association!
I had attended ITW’s premiere annual conference twice as a “reader”/guest, in awe of the talent and generosity of the community of authors that I met there. While there, I was able to take a “Mastercraft” workshop with Meg Gardiner one year and Lee Child the next.
With Meg’s guidance and input from the other participants in our small group, I worked on improving a draft scene that ultimately became the basis for Chapter 3 in All That Fall!
One of the first things to come from my ITW membership was a request that I make an “under-1-minute” video of the space in which I write. With some trepidation I did so since I had never filmed “ a selfie video” for anyone other than my kids.
Here it is…
If you write, where do you write? Alternatively, whether you write or not, what’s your favorite spot in your home to read? Upload a photo of that space (you in it or not!) here and you will be entered into my monthly giveaway for a signed First Edition of All That Fall: An Emma Lawson Thriller Book #1. (No purchase necessary. Must reside in the US to be eligible.)
I hope you’re staying safe in these challenging times, and warm if you live in “wintry” weather—it’s 35 degrees here in Northern California this morning.
