Wordsmith– I also volunteer

As a writer we need to protect writing time, but writing is solitary. No man or woman should be an island. Knowing that volunteering has a meaningful, positive impact on my local chapter of Romance Writers of America, OCCRWA, I signed up as Secretary/membership chair.  It’s time consuming to count cash, checks, and paypal receipts and update members for this year’s roster, using Excel.  There’s follow-up involved, but the group is so nice that they don’t mind being reminded to renew.

I like being part of the OCCRWA community and board.  Volunteering is about helping others, but the organization helped and continues to help me.  What better way is there to give back to a giving organization?  If you are a romance writer, benefits are enormous on every second Saturday of the month. OCCRWA’s motto is one hand reaching forward with the other reaching back.couple with a rose
