I'm missing another writing conference this week in North Carolina. It didn't work with my budget or schedule this year. Seeing so many posts from writing friends has sparked me to scrounge up some cash and register for the upcoming Write to Publish Conference June 14-17th at Wheaton College near Chicago.
This year I've decided not to go with a pitch or a manuscript, but to go with the mindset to learn and network. That's it. Learn and network!
This will be hard for me, but I think it's important. In the past, I've been overwhelmed and stressed about landing a publishing deal that I haven't taken the time to enjoy, learn and network.
Not saying...I don't have a book in mind or a project in progress, but I'm not pitching it. NOT pitching it. Just going to learn and network. Learn and network!
Is anyone going to Write to Publish? I'd like to meet you and hear all about your writing projects. Send me a message, Tweet at me on Twitter or comment below! Hope to see you in June!
