After the Conference

Another great way to digest all the amazing information you acquire at a conference is to start chatting with your writer friends about it after you get home.

This week I’m been communicating via e-mail with two of my critique groups. We’re discussing agents, school visits, and other info about the conference. It’s been great getting everyone’s opinion and feedback and perspective on these important issues.

Plus, it’s motivational. After we return home from a conference, it’s easy to start feeling like the whole experience was some sort of elusive dream or fairy tale. Connecting with writer’s friends who are interested in the same topics that piqued your interest at the conference can motivate you to follow through on those thoughts and ideas that dazzled you during the conference. It’s making a difference for me!


  1. Hi Nancy–I’m just now catching up on reading blogs, and getting excited all over again as your posts are reminding me of all the fun of LA! Some good reminders of some follow-up things I still need to do, too. I’m sorry we didn’t have a chance to meet. They keep the RA’s pretty busy and I was lucky enough to snag a spot in Linda Sue Park’s four-day master class, so missed your session. Maybe next year! Your book is terrific! Ordered it when it came out. Some great new strategies to try!
