I went to a writing conference today.
Because It seems to be my nature to approach things from the negative (yeah, I know; I’m trying to get better at reversing that), I was a little disappointed. I thought, I already knew most of what was presented in the sessions.
(Plus I was operating on two hours of sleep and 16 hours on my feet at work. Under those circumstances, maybe nothing would’ve met my expectations.)
Then I thought … Hey! I already knew most of what was presented in the sessions!
The moral of that story is: Get your butt in the chair and write already! You’re a writer. You know this stuff!
That and no matter what sessions are offered, and how much I do or don’t know, the camaraderie and energy is worth every minute spent with other writers. Enthusiasm and self-confidence is contagious these days, rather than threatening.
How’s that for a positive spin?!
Now I’m going to get some sleep …
