This past week was literally the single most writerly thing I have ever done. I was at a conference with THOUSANDS of other writers.
That’s right, thousands.
That’s more than I have ever hung out with before by several factors of 10.
I was there as the “Community Manager” of Bending Genres. If you were there and happened to walk by the booth, there is an incredibly good chance that I almost pounced on you with an almost insultingly cheery “Hi!” And then if you made any eye contact whatsoever, I proceeded to talk a lot, quickly, and with the type of energy only borne from little sleep, strong coffee and eating mostly chocolate for something like 5 hours. (Robert, it was still only 2…)
But, the thing that I noticed, realized, and was basically beaten over my head over and over and over.
Writing’s FREAKIN’ COOL!
And all y’all writers are pretty freakin’ cool your own selves.
Anyway, I made a TON of contacts, picked up so very much swag, and my brain is all a buzz with some new ideas for writing and the sharing of said writing.
So, friends, thanks for all the awesome-ness and great talks. I’ll see you soon!
