Last night my mentor for the summer of '08 gave the speech at the Kiss of Death General Meeting. The General Meeting is usually a pretty great affair as it is the kick off of the conference and I get to see all my friends I normally only see online. There were hugs and great comments and Roxanne saying:
"We don't write because of the voices, to see our books on the shelf or because we want to tell a story. We write so that we can make someone feel the same feeling we felt when we read that one first book that hit us in the heart and make us go 'Wow' ..." ~Roxanne St. Claire, Washington DC, 2009.
