Emerald City Writers Conference

It has been quite a busy summer, but now it’s time to start thinking about fall writing conferences. My choices are the Surrey Writers Conference or the Emerald City Writers Conference in Seattle. I’ve been to Surrey for the past two years and I loved every minute of it. The excitement that buzzed in the air was contagious and just being with people who shared the same passion was satisfying.

But this year, I’ve decided to check out the Emerald City Writers Conference in Bellevue, Washington from October 28-30. New workshops, new editors and agents, but mostly new exposure and a chance to make new friends and contacts.

Well, whichever one I decide to go with it’ll be a weekend that will ignite the spark I need to keep writing and I can’t wait.

So go online and check both of these amazing writing conferences out and let me know what you think.

Housekeeping

Well, I decided that no serious writing is going to get done if I don’t clear away all the clutter from my small little writing desk. I have started to file and organize some important papers I forgot I had, and VOILA! my mind suddenly feels less cluttered as well.
Next I am going to organize my days leading up to the conference to make sure I get in at least 1-2 hours of writing time done each day. I will be making a schedule tomorrow which I will share with you. I feel it’s important to be accountable to someone in order to motivate and encourage positive action.

Problem solved?

So, what did I do about my dilemma you ask? I took a piece of paper, folded it in half, and wrote down as many ideas for both books that I could remember. Unfortunately (or maybe not) the book that I have put to rest since the Surrey’s Writers Conference in October is the one that is blooming with possibilities.

My List

I love lists, they keep me organized. Without them I would be lost. My current list involves my writing. As mentioned earlier, my writing group is catching up to where I have left off which is wonderful incentive to get my butt in gear and start writing. My characters are never far from my mind and I am always thinking of what predicament to put them in next. I also have to get my short story ready for the Surrey Writers Conference, and for my next newspaper/magazine effort.
A good spring cleaning of my writing desk and I’m off to the races.
It must be spring because I am really excited about this! 🙂
