Write on Con (the free online conference for writers) this year was jam packed, loaded up and overflowing with information and inspiration.
With so much to absorb into my brain, I hoped sleep would allow me to continue… I woke up this morning ready to catch-up and join in on the final day … and found myself overloaded… brain fried. The good thing is, all the forums and links are still up and I can catch up on the last day in a week or so.
What I learnt from Write on Con this year… never give up – I am a writer – I love being a writer – I will write whether I am published or not. I found some areas that I need to fine tune. I learnt more about the agent/editing/publishing process. And I felt like I met a bunch of amazing people.
I got Ninja’d … an undercover agent commented on my query letter and tore it apart (ouch) .. so I rewrote it and a peer tore it apart (ouch) so I rewrote it and another peer gave me the thumbs up (phew). I know I need to stretch so I can learn and improve on my craft – all the feedback I received was fantastic.
And for the overload factor…
I need to unplug, and get off line for a couple of days.
My WIP is calling me and with such an overloaded mind – I need to take this stored energy and inflect it into my writing .. not tweeting or facebooking or commenting on blogs… all of which I love and will return to soon.
What do you have calling you… to push you to turn off, unplug or adjust old habits?
