My first Author's Day as an author

I mentioned a while back that I'd been invited to attend an Author's Day event that I participated in as a teen, this time as a guest author. The Author's Day was this past Friday, and it was just as exciting and enjoyable as I'd hoped.

The best parts:

-Talking with a whole bunch of talented teen writers, most of whom were super-enthusiastic about writing and had lots of interesting thoughts on the process.

-Hearing them read parts of their work and finding out the stories behind the writing of those stories.

-Seeing two of the kids from my group win top honors--their stories published in the annual booklet.

-And, most of all, knowing that just by being there, I hopefully helped inspire them to continue pursuing their creative dreams--after all, if I was once one of them, and now I'm a published author, why shouldn't any of they be in a similar position in ten years, give or take?

I don't think I could have asked for my first appearance as a professional author to go any better. :)

Yes, and despite the fact that I was probably more nervous than the kids who had to read their stories aloud. :D
