~tomorrow's blogfest and upcoming writers' conference!

OMG – it’s almost here!

I have been so slammed lately with real-world stuff that almost everything relating to writing (including this blog) has been rudely shoved into a gloomy corner.

And that’s how I feel when I can’t make the time to write or blog – GLOOMY! And pissy, cranky, crabby – you name it. I love to write and really enjoy blogging. Not being able to do either takes some of the purpose out of my days…

BUT – tomorrow is the BACK-TO-SCHOOL BLOGFEST!!!

I’m so excited – and I’m thrilled at the number of participants who’ve signed up! I can’t wait to read everyone’s entries. It’s a good thing I stretched the ‘fest over four days, because I want to read each and every story.

The other thing I’m excited about is that I’m attending the Central Coast Writers Conference this weekend, and guess who the keynote speaker is!

Nathan Bransford! Uber-agent for Curtis Brown, Ltd!

Nathan has the coolest blog full of great advice for writers – I encourage you to check it out if you’re not a regular reader.

He’s also presenting one workshop session called: Getting Published: Let’s Play Query Letter Mad Lib – and I was lucky enough to get a seat in this! The timing couldn’t be more perfect for me. I am beyond excited…

Hope to run into some other West Coast writers from the blogosphere while at the conference. I’ll give a full report when I get back.

Off to do my homework for school tomorrow…

  1. I’m so jealous! I would love to see Nathan speak! He’s like my dream Agent. If I could get him to represent me, life would be ridiculously perfect.
    Already wrote my piece for tomorrow’s fest. Not sure how I feel about it. . . . This was a hard one for me. I got you on your monsterfest, though!

  2. Misty & damyanti – I’m really excited about this conference. Last year’s was my first real writers’ conference. I sat down with a real agent – Laurie McLean and was able to discuss my WIP. Learned some valuable stuff. Can’t wait to here what Nathan has to say about queries!
