I just attended the West Virginia Writer's Conference.
Along with lots of writers, there were an abundance of geese, lakes and other wildlife.
I attended work shops on children's writing, writing short stories, beginnings and endings, marketing yourself and your books, etc.
I enjoyed the workshops and learned info that will help me with my writing. Plus, I met old writing friends and made new ones.
At the Saturday Night Banquet, I excitedly accepted awards for three of my children's manuscripts that I had entered in their annual West Virginia Writing Competition. I received 2nd, 1HM and 3HM in the children's category.
Now, I need to start sending out my MG to publishers. I checked my records and I haven't sent it to anyone this year.
If you write, you must submit or your work will never get published.
Just make sure it is ready to submit.
Let other eyes see it, let other writers critique it and edit it until you are happy as you can be with your finished product.
I have been working on my author's page. It is still under construction, but it is on the web.
You can go here to visit it.
There is also a page above that has a link to it.
Check it out. If you have any ideas for my page or questions, contact me on the contact gadget. I'd love to hear from you.
What have you got planned for this summer? Any conferences? Any submitting?
