Conferences

I had a great weekend at the OWFI Writers Conference in Oklahoma City this last weekend. Made some new friends, reconnected with some older friends and attended some awesome workshops. It was great!

One of the best things was getting to spend time with my fantastic editor from The Wild Rose Press, Ally Robertson, and getting to know her better. She took pitch appointments on Friday and Saturday, but didn’t seem to be in demand on Saturday. My little ole’ brain kicked into gear and next thing she knew, I was there asking for her help in plotting a sequel to my upcoming release, GRAVE SECRETS.

My instincts must have been spot on because she told me she loved to plot. Yah! Ally helped with some problems in the plot and pointed me in the right direction. Don’t you just love it when that happens?

Saturday night everyone gets dressed up for the Awards Banquet. I’d entered but my name wasn’t called. 😦  However, my roommate did come in the money. I was THRILLED for her!

I’m still trying to recoup from the hectic two day conference so it’s a good thing I didn’t have to get up and go to a day job today. Even though I come home pumped and wiped out at the same time, I guarantee you I’ll be back there again next year. Don’t want to miss out on anything, you know. 😉

  1. Sounds like the weekend was a great way to get you psyched up to work again — exactly what a conference should do.
