Hi Everyone! My writing name is Antoinette Villa and my dream is to be published. There I’ve said it out loud. That’s pretty scary, huh? Actually it was darn terrifying until I met my critique group. Thanks to them I’m still following my dream.
I’m one of the original girls, well not the original originals, but I came along when we were still meeting at Ray’s Pizza so I’m sorta original. I walked into Ray’s with the beginning of a rough ms and when I say rough I’m not exaggerating. Although I have been known to exaggerate, I’m not about this story. Judi took me under her wing like a mother hen and encouraged me to keep writing while Tina and Alexis cheered me on. The rest is history, I’m still writing and I know without this group…well who knows what I’d be doing. All I can say is, what a group!
Congratulations to Vijaya for winning the Desert Rose award last night. You deserve it!
