Today's quote is about food, which I have been thinking about frequently with the start of my new diet, and comes from one of my audiobooks, The Motherless Child Project by Janie McQeen and Robin Karr.
"Surely, Sarah could find a substitute that behaved more like real butter. I suspected the better way to go might be to find things to eat that didn't try to mimic things you couldn't eat." -- Emily Amber
I'm sure all my writer friends can relate to this -- "Besides, anyone with an Internet connection feels they have the credentials to critique or belittle anything these days." -- Mrs. Peters in The Enchantress Returns by Chris Colfer
This month for my mentoring section I will recap all I learned at Faff Camp, that was held in my home town this year. Of course I should state as a disclaimer that this was what I got of the conference, so any errors are the students' (mine) not the teachers'.
The most important thing I came away with was that the voiceover business is filled with caring and compassionate folks. I could not get over the environment of sharing knowledge, everyone was ready to help their colleagues. I definitely recommend this experience. I will be sharing the breakout sections that I took and a short synopsis from each but, you can tailor your experience at Faff Camp by participating in topics that you are interested in.

When I was reading to my husband the other night (yes we have story time at our house) found this great quote in the new Anna & Charles book. "Without magic, he had no savor." So this quote is dedicated to my husband who is my magic AND my savor.
I love books! I love reading books! I love reading them aloud so others can hear the characters I imagine when I read.
