Making the Most of Any Writing Conference

Once again, for those of you following my blog tour, I'll be at Literarily Speaking.
Be sure and leave a comment.

While I'm at the mystery writing conference on the high seas, I thought I'd give my views on how best to make the most of a writing conference. Of course this is different than a fan convention.

At a writing conference you'll hear people presenting about different aspects of writing. It's interesting to note that each author approaches writing in a different way. You may not agree with everything you hear, but keep an open mind. Listen and take notes.

If a writing conference does nothing else but give you the urge to sit down and write, it's worth whatever you paid to go. I've never been to a writing conference where I haven't learned something.

You'll meet lots of people, exchange cards with them. As your writing career grows, they may be able to help you or you them.

Now, I off to participate in this writer's conference.

Happy Writing and Buenos Dias.
