Every time I attend a conference two things happen.
1. I realize I have a ton to learn.
2. I'm on fire to write better: to know more, to deepen my characters, to cut out unnecessary plot points, and to write the best story ever.
Have you seen the list of presenters? I'm putting stars by the ones I've met.
29 Authors: (including Natalie Whipple*, Caroline Star Rose, Liesl Shurtliff*, Peggy Eddleman*, Dan Krokos, Dianne Salerni*, Kimberley Griffiths Little* Mindy McGinnis, Ellen Oh)
20 awesome literary agents (including Peter Knapp-love his eyes, Victoria Marini, Sarah LaPolla, Suzie Townsend, and Kathleen Ortiz)
9 Editors: (including Sarah Dotts Barley and Patricia Riley)
hope you'll take some time this week to pop in. Even the live events can be viewed after the fact.
If you have material up in the forums, let me know in the comments and I'll check it out-in my pjs:)
What's your favorite reason for attending writing conferences?
