I’m so excited about it since I’ve never been to one before. I almost feel …guilty. I get to spend an entire day learning about something that gives me so much pleasure. I’ll meet fellow writers and experts who I’m sure to learn from.
In preparation for the conference, I decided to read the books by the authors who will be speaking. So far, I read Jay Asher‘s “Thirteen Reasons Why” and, for reasons only my closest friends will understand, this was difficult for me to read. But — I’m really glad I did. It was brilliant and I’m not just saying that because the guy will be critiquing my first chapter — yeay — it was so well thought out and deep and I couldn’t put it down!! (That says a lot about a book that I didn’t want to read in the first place). I’m so blessed that I’ll get to meet the author of such a great book (New York Times bestseller, no less). I’m sure I’ll learn a lot from him and all the speakers.
Happy writing! Hope to see fellow writers at the conference!
