Can I just say this is the BEST way of giving to the aspiring writer’s community I think I’ve ever seen? There’s such a wealth of information.
I’ve never been to a real writer’s conference. There are very few where I live (in the Paris suburbs, France). And the ones that do happen…aren’t in English. There’s only been one or two for English writers here and it costs about three times what you’d pay in the U.S.
So when I found out about the free online conference, I jumped at the chance. Just like with a regular conference, you can pick and choose which activities to go to and take part in depending on where you are as a writer. I personally find myself reading just about EVERYTHING. The video blogs are especially awesome. Feels like you’re really there.
Because I live in France, I have to catch up on late night activities in the morning when I wake up.
For today, I’m lurking around the WIP Critique boards where I posted my first five pages of my current WIP ‘Fossegrim’.
Ok, enough ranting. Just wanted to let you guys know where I’m at (although many of you are probably hanging around the writeoncon website right along with me;)
Question- How can we ever thank these agents, editors, and authors who put the conference together enough? Besides writing better books for them to work with??;)
