GRRWG hosted it's first ever writer's conference this past weekend and it was a rousing success! The committee did a great job, everyone pitched in to help out and it ran so smoothly that if anything had been falling apart behind the scenes (and from my experience something usually does) no one knew about it. Yay Team!!
Highlight for me - besides the sessions - was the agent pitch. I lost my "agent pitch virginity" at this conference which ended with a request for the first 3 re-written chapters of The Reluctant Psychic. Yay me! She made it really easy for all of us and was such fun to have at the conference.
While I’ve survived my conferences, I have a load to do this week. First, I need to study and pass a tech exam that’s needed for work for a partner relationship that we have. Second, I need to WRITE! Third, I need to get a critique group scheduled with Sidney and anyone else that’s looking for a group and meet up sometime this week. That’s on top of a meeting I’m hosting tomorrow for a bunch of techies. I’m busy, busy, busy.
Lucky for me I have quirky pets to make me laugh. This is Marco, our Maine Coon kitten (yes, even at 18.5 lbs. he’s still a kitten for another year).
