This months DSRA meeting was a great success. The meeting began as usual with our business meeting where we handed out our member milestone pins. Here is mine:
Each charm means something different. I have two 'diamonds' on mine (really beautiful chrystal beads) which represent my two sales, then I have an Arkansas charm, a silver star for being a PRO Member, an inspirational charm for each rejection, a gold key for manuscripts over 50K, and a copper key for manuscripts up to 25K. These pins are a great conversation piece at conferences and give the members a great sense of accomplishment and belonging.
