I love attending conferences. I always promise myself that I will be outgoing. That I will seek new friends, start lively conversations, ask inspired questions, and maybe even motivate someone newer to the writing world than myself. I promise myself that I will not hide in the corner.
Easier said then done.
It's hard to meet new people. It's hard to put yourself out there. But...
It's important to do it.
And I'm going to try it again.
I'm going to the Book Academy Writer's Conference on September 30th, 2010.
It's at UVU, in Orem Utah. For details check out their website.
It's just over two weeks away. That's enough time to line up a sitter, take the day off, and enjoy a day surrounded by other writers like you.
Early registration is open until this Thursday, September 16th. The conference is only $49 until that date, then it goes up to $59.
Are any of you going? I'd love to see you there!
