Who Are We?
Carla M. Lee: An author, artist, and attorney living in the Midwest USA with my partner and ridiculous dog.
Karen Healey: An author and teacher living in Christchurch, New Zealand with my awesome flatmate and an overgrown herb garden.
Robyn Fleming: I write, parent, and sometimes teach martial arts in Tucson, Arizona. My five year old is internet famous for asking whether our country is named after Captain America, which probably tells you everything you need to know about our household.
Topic: What we wish we knew about writing.
- You don’t have to finish everything, you’re allowed to decide something is terrible or you’re not ready yet and move on.
- Conversely, sometimes you will hate it but need to keep going.
- Create a group of writers who will support you and help you – maybe join fandom, worked for us.
- Read everything.
