Getting the Most Out of a Writer's Conference

While I'm at Bouchercon, I know I wont take the time to write blogs, so I thought I write a few ahead of time that will appear while I'm gone.

A writer's conference is where you go to learn more about writing. Over the years, I've been to many. At first, I drank in all the presentations like a thirsty person in the desert. Oh, how I loved learning so much from such talented writers.

Year passed, but I kept going to writers conferences--and still do. I know a lot about writing now, but I still learn many new things.

Another thing about a writers conference is that it energizes you to get busy with your writing.

When you go always pack a good attitude, go expecting to learn, take notes so you don't forget. Participate in everything. Talk to everyone. Make new friends.

I've made friends at writers conference who've become friends for life.

Tomorrow I'll tell you about Mystery Conventions which is a whole different experience.
