What better way to wind down the year than to discuss the progress made and the lessons learned?  EURO chat was full of wisdom and advice.  It’s been amazing watching all of our writers grow and learn from each other. 

At USA chat, we had guest Alvaro Rodriguez @alrodz taking questions from our chatters ranging from where his big break came from to how he handles the insecurities of being a writer… don’t we all wish that was a simple question to answer J  Al also shared with us the lessons he learned in 2010 and so much more.
