…about the writer’s conference.

I began writing this blog post while at the conference. And, yes, I brought my laptop with me to the conference. (My laptop and the motel’s wireless made it easy to feed my computer/internet addiction and keep the cybermonkey on my back happy.)

The conference was great — there were great speakers, it was great meeting fellow writers and it was a great opportunity to pitch my novel to editors and literary agents (who, it turns out, are such nice folks, kind and gracious). If you are a writer and haven’t attended a writers’ conference, I recommend doing so.

I approached my pitches with fear and trembling, but, surprise, I received requests for synopses/sample chapters.

To say that I am bowled over is the understatement of the year. I am stoked. I am excited, delighted, elated, and exhilarated (check your thesaurus for other synonyms of the word “exhilarate” if these words I’ve chosen don’t paint a clear picture for you). And I say a big “THANK YOU” to my friends who prayed for my success this weekend.
