October Writer’s Conferences Swamped my Brain

My office is cluttered with data, notes, business cards, and wonders retrieved from the ECWC  and the SIWC.  I am juggling a one night per week Novel Writing Class, part of the Western Washington University Extension (no credits) taught by Laura Kalpakian … and the effort to organize the material from the two excellent writer’s conferences.  Once organized, I will return and pass on light bulb moments.  Once I’ve reviewed and logged the data into my brain cells, perhaps my cranium will stop throbbing.  I’ll return this weekend.

In general terms, writer’s conferences have great value for writers.  We experience contact with experts, agents, editors, publishers, other writers, both hopeful beginning writers and writing experts, all with the goal to further the production of good writing worthy of a reader’s time and money. Ideas and ideals are shared.  New friends found. Helping hands full of encouragement, waiting.  My money jar for next year’s conferences is getting ready … a little here and a little there.  Maybe I wont miss money during the year … maybe … and will be glad to have it when a conference rolls around.  Let’s keep those pencils moving.
