I’m currently en route to the Writer’s Digest Conference in NYC (yay for free wifi on the fancy bus!) and taking a chance on becoming of a proper writer (and by proper, I mean published, not actually acting in a proper manner. :p). Though don’t get me wrong, I’ve no illusions about magically winning over an agent or editor (locking eyes from across the room and knowing we are meant to make beautiful literature together) at the conference.
But, I do hope to meet new writing friends and also to learn more about all of those complicated things authors need to have a handle on after they’ve completed their final draft – self marketing, self-publishing, the pros/cons of agents, and whether or not to go the traditional publishing route… And also to stay in a neat old hotel in NYC, see a show, hopefully visit the Met or the NY public library, and of course, get my Saturday night drink coupon. :p
Wish me luck! 🙂
