In the beginning....

In November 2007, those embarking in first Bootcamp offered by the Romance Writers of Australia would not know that seven months later, we would still going strong. We were lucky - we all got along. What started as individual writers all doing the same workshop resulted in a group of like-minded writers learning, discussing and supporting eachother even though we write for different markets.

These ladies, our wonderful moderator Rachel Robinson and our wonderful presenters - Anne Gracie, Robyn Grady, Anna Campbell, Melissa James, Diane Gaston and Denise Rossetti - helped me to get my writing groove back. I'm so happy to be part of the Bootcamper team - and to continue our mission of producing the best possible stories we can.

So come in and join in our fun on our Bootcamper blog!

Hi Eleni,

Obviously I'm not part of the group, but wanted to drop in and say hi. I'm all in for cyber fun and sounds like you've got some wonderful support. Looking forward to more posts :-)

Eleni Konstantine said...

Glad you dropped in Sussan and thanks for your support. We're hoping to have some fun here - so join in anytime :)

Yay for Bootcamp, one of the best writing experiences I've ever had.
I would heartily recommend it to all writers though I think Rachel is wondering if she's spawned a monster *g* which is making her a little nervous about repeating the process.

Eleni Konstantine said...

I agree Alison - definitely a hightlight of my writing experience so far. And yes, it has become larger than life, hasn't it. Can Rachel handle more groups like us? LOL!

Congratulations on how much you ladies have achieved.

Eleni Konstantine said...

Thanks Natalie. We're blessed that we got along and decided to stick together. And yes, we are lucky our members are having some sucess - yay Hannah and Alison :)

Denise Rossetti said...

Great idea, ladies! I was incredibly impressed with you all during Bootcamp, so I'm sure this blog is going to positively ring with your successes. *grin*

The very best of luck to all of you, though I suspect you only need a smidgen of it.

Eleni Konstantine said...

Thanks Denise *beaming*. We felt honoured that you presented at the Bootcamp. I know I'll take the luck, even it's just as smidgen *grin*

Anne Gracie said...

Hi there bootcamper -- I am so delighted you've all stuck together and kept working forward on your writing. It's great to have a group to give support. Wriing is such a solitary activity, and it's easy to lose confidence.
I'm really proud of you all.

Congratulations, Bootcampers! It sounds like bootcamp was a wonderful experience. You've achieved so much. You should be proud of yourselves. Best of luck with your writing.

Eleni Konstantine said...

Hi Anne, So glad you could make it. Yes, it's fantastic that we have stuck together and I agree, writing can be solitary, so always good to have that extra encouragement. It's all thanks to RWA. Hey bootcampers, Madam Prez is proud of us!!! yay!

Eleni Konstantine said...

Hi Michelle, we were so lucky that bootcamp was a great experience. And it has prompted us to move forward in our writing. Just look at Alison and Hannah go. Thanks for dropping in and your well wishes. It's wonderful to have the support of all RWA too.
