FIT@50 \ week 19
Growing up playing every sport imaginable, the idea of being sidelined was inconceivable. As I’ve grown more “fit”, the idea of shining light on others while supporting from the bench is amazing.
I considered what a difference a week makes. We were in NYC for a thriller writers’ conference dominated by a different crowd – okay, it’s still very much a boys club.
Liliana Hart stood aside as authors introduced themselves to discuss crime and mystery writing and my career in law enforcement. It was different to have writers not recognize her, but she genuinely encouraged me to go off and talk “shop.”
This week, the table’s been turned as NYC has been taken over by romance writers during the Romance Writers of America conference. I must confess that I enjoy cheering from the sidelines while my wife shines.
Giving praise and support to others is a blessing for all.
