Writing Conferences

Writing Conferences can be really awesome.  Not just for the interaction with industry professionals and other writers (though the networking can be fabulous!).  But one thing conferences can do is help you re-charge.  I always leaves conferences feeling inspired to work harder and read more.

And right now, you can be part of conference without going anywhere.  If you haven't already, check out WriteOnCon.  Transcripts from the panels and live chats from the past few days are posted on the blog.

It's definitely got me more motivated to right, especially getting feedback in the forums. I know what to work on and change, but I also got good feedback that makes me feel like it's not a total waste of time. haha Which is always good. I'm also grateful I could share my thoughts in a guest post!

This was a fabulous conference and it got me excited about working on my MS again. Funny how the summer can drain you, so this was perfect timing.

Great to meet new people, read wonderful posts by industry professionals and also get the feeling that agents are actual, real people!! :-)

Five Random Things About Suzie

1. I drink so much orange soda, it's probably running through my veins. I've been known to go through a twelve pack of diet sunkist in a day.

2. I'm legitimately nocturnal (or a vampire). I will be so exhausted at two pm that I'm falling asleep standing up - it has happened before, at Six Flags no less - but as soon as the sun goes down I'm wide awake.

3. I have a gorgeous unused $6000 Reem Acra wedding dress hanging in my closet, and it showed up on my doorstep the same day my (now ex) fiance broke up with me. And thank God for that. I wouldn't have wanted to waste that dress on him.

4. Social anxiety plagues me daily. I write a script and practice in front of the mirror when I have to make a phone call, but most people who interact with me have no idea how nervous I am (or perhaps they lie) because I've worked so hard to try to overcome it.

5. I'm actually worried that I will never love my children (when I do have them in the far off future) as much as I love my dogs. I just like animals better than people - they're sweet and innocent and soft and furry - is that so wrong?
