And . . . my brain is officially larger

Well, I didn’t really have time for yummy coffee today, since I was at my literary group meeting this morning. The coffee was a little weak, which means it was strong for everyone else. From Tuesday through Thursday, I did nothing but attend the online WriteOnCon, which was totally awesome. There were agents, editors, and authors all chatting, vloging, and blogging so much useful stuff that I feel like they crammed five years of knowledge into just three days. Here’s a link to access the YouTube vlog: http://www.youtube.com/user/writeoncon#p/us

I think I got a lot out of the character and plot posts. Also, it was fun to watch the live chats with skype. I really got a feel for the agents’ personalities. The forums were wonderful and it was nice to get further critiques on my query and first pages. I meet some new friends and started tweeting. All in all, I was impressed. The gals at WriteOnCon really put together a first class conference.

So, did you attend the conference, and if you did, what part was your favorite?

Filed: Misc

  • I was there! I loved all of it, so I can’t think of any one part I liked best.

    PS. – Could you fix the music playlist so it doesn’t play automatically? While I like your choices, it’s annoying to have your music clashing with my music.

  • Didn’t that conference rock!! I loved the live query critique. That was amazing to get a glimpse of the process.

    Sounds like your coffee would keep me awake for 2 day lol!

    WriteOnCon was so amazing! Stuffing your face with all the knowledge, all the awesome people to learn and teach. All of it was my favorite. I wish that it would have gone on longer!!!

    Reminder – Guess that Character Blogfest is this Thursday and Friday! Look forward to describing your character!

    Thanks, Deb, I didn’t even notice it was playing automatically.

    Kerri, the query critiques were my favorites as well.

    Jen, looking forward to the Guess that Character Blogfest. It should be a lot of fun!
