Suzanne rocked the house with her intimate stories ranging from how she began her career as a category writer to how she too dealt with those famous rejection letters.
Like me, Suzanne is a plotter and loves to write those long outlines. And like the rest of us, she admits to getting lost in cyberspace. “I surf through the internet and the next thing I know it is six hours later,” Suzanne admitted, causing everyone to chuckle. Oh yes, we are all guilty of losing writing time thanks to email, yahoo loops and don’t forget about facebook.
“Set daily goals,” Suzanne suggested, “And, reward yourself when you are finished your project. Don’t set your goals too high or else your brain will work against you.” She went on to tell us that the key is to keep track of your daily accomplishments.
I’d like to thank Suzanne Brockmann once again for being our Keynote speaker for the afternoon. I wish her success with her play, “Looking for Billy Hayes,” and look forward to the release of her next novel.♥
