My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

Joining RWA

With my freelance job and the extra money I’m earning with that, I’ve decided to save up some of it to join RWA (Romance Writers of America, for those of you who don’t know :)). While most of my writing can really be just classified as “novel with strong romantic elements” since my stories aren’t generally focused on the love story between the two characters, I think joining this nationally recognized organization will really help me network more. The romance genre has a wide variety of subgenres,  like inspirational romance and young adult. Many of my writer friends are already a part of this organization too, and I’ve discovered there’s a local chapter in Cincinnati that I could join if I wanted to as well.

Plus, I’d really like to try and enter the Golden Heart this year, although I’m going to have to really put myself in gear if I want to consider it as the deadline is normally sometime in mid-November–and that’s only three months from now. I may not make it this year, but I will try. 🙂

  1. I’ve had a great experience with RWA and you’re right — romance has branches which include women’s fiction, romantic elements, and inspirational. There’s room for everyone at the party.

  2. Awesome! 😀

  3. If you join the Cincinnati chapter (OVRWA), I might see you at one of the meetings, since I belong to that chapter.

    • Oh cool! That’s the closest chapter to where I live and I might end up joining 🙂 I looked up the library online and it’s just under an hour drive.

  4. Congrats and good luck! 🙂

  5. Good luck with the Golden Heart! I tried the other day, fyi. I was sad at how little relevant experience I have at anything interesting. LOL I finally came up with a potty training story, but mostly I don’t go to the places they’re interested in and do things they want to know about. You never know. Five bucks would be nice. ;D

  6. Congratulations on joining RWA! And good luck with Golden Heart!

    I’d also like to apologize for not keeping up with the mini-Nano. July was a bad month for me, and I had to take time off the Internet. I’m very sorry!
