The importance of “in person.”

This blog is late today. I had a busy morning and my local RWA meeting to attend. Lunch and hob-nobbing with my fellow wizards of the pen is always an invigorating time. And the drive home from the meeting got me thinking about the importance of seeing the people you know in person.

We do a lot of “connection” online nowadays. The internet allows us to meet and converse with people from all walks of life and around the globe. I ♥ my Soul Mate family so much, and have gotten to know so many of you right here at the keyboard. The sharing and support of this group is amazing.

And recently I got the opportunity to meet some of you in person at the RWA National Convention.

Of course I’ve known my editor, Cheryl Yeko, for a long time, and we’ve met on a number of occasions, but this was my first time meeting Collette Cameron and Beth Carter, and we’ve been friends for years, all three of us coming to Soul Mate at about the same time.

Along with all the other wonderful things that happened that week, meeting these two, and so many of the other Soul Mate authors face-to-face, was among the highlights of the conference.

Of course, this was one of the other highlights:

Oh yeah, and I also punched Spider-Man:

Don’t ask. What happens in Denver, stays in Denver.
