Another Bucket List Item Bites the Dust
I’ve been working on my 9 Month Professional Personal Bucket Lists for a while now. I can report that as of tomorrow, I can strike off # 5 on the Professional list ~ Attend at least one writer’s conference.
I’ll be heading for the Write Mind mini-conference sponsored by the Rhode Island Romance Writers. I’m presenting my workshop on story structure. Notice I don’t claim it’s a plotting workshop. Since I’m a pantser at heart, the best I can do is a rough landscape of where my story is heading. But I do know a few important high and low points every story needs if I’m going to hit all my readers’ hot buttons. That’s what I’ll share with the writers in Rhode Island. If you’re in the New England area, how about joining me? The mini-conference runs from 9:30-4:00 on Saturday.
I’m also looking forward to riding down and back with my fellow Kensington author Hannah Howell. She’s a romance legend, NY Times bestseller and genuinely delightful person! We’re going to have a ball.
My speaking and traveling schedule is beginning to fill up for the next few months. Check my Media & Events page to see if I’ll be coming to a conference near you.
There is a special energy around creative people. I’m always primed and ready to write after I’ve spent some time with other authors. Women always find a way to be creative. Whatever you do–cooking, gardening, scrapbooking, making music, sewing, decorating your home, reading and reviewing, the list goes on–I’m betting there are things that encourage you to expand to become even more creative. What are those things?
What is your creative outlet? What inspires you to be more creative?
