RTW - Something Positive

Road Trip Wednesday is a "Blog Carnival," where YA Highway's contributors post a weekly writing- or reading-related question and answer it on our own blogs. You can hop from destination to destination and get everybody's unique take on the topic.

This week's topic: Discuss something positive about the publishing industry.

This is an awesome topic, but on the other hand a little difficult.

1. The writing. Whether it's mine or someone else's, every book in publishing had to start somewhere.

2. The friends. I've met so many awesome people in my last couple years of meeting people online that share my love of writing. Before I always pictured authors as kind of stuffy, hiding out in their houses all day indulging their love of writing. Then I came to AW and that image was shattered by all the awesome writers I met there.

3. Harry Potter! Harry Potter came out of the publishing industry and for that I am forever thankful. :D

I had something else too, but then I read Kaitlin's post and I can't remember it! :( I'll add it if I ever manage to figure it out...

I think you have every majorly epic part of the industry accounted for. :D

Agreed! "Writing" is an excellent thing to include in this list--after all, it's our passion for this craft that brings us all together.

Word verification: kinsis - appropriate, I think, since I am also a horse loving gal! :)
