~LDStorymakers Wrap Up~
WOW would be an understatement. I went to the annual conference again this year, my second time, and once again I came home blown away. The classes are amazing. If you have never gone, plan now, save all your pennies and get a sitter and you'll be so :) you did. If you have been before you know the mind blowing intense, influx of information, fun and people.
I went to a class about using social media and I thought, huh. I'm on Facebook, but I'm not on Twitter and I don't have a blog. huh. Before you shuffle off to Twitter to join my flock on there, I'm not....baby steps people. Maybe I'll be in denial about my time again at a later date but today is not the day. Yesterday I started this blog, and after a whopping-ly successful day I'm feeling pretty good about it.
Another class I went to was on pacing by Josi Killpack. How to speed your manuscript up or down and why you should. All week since that class every show and movie I watch I think about their pacing and I have to say that that last Harry Potter was a little to fast as far as the pacing went in my opinion. But hey that's just me. I will be looking through my manuscript and adjusting like crazy for a few weeks.
There were many more classes and amazing presenters and I will have lots and lots of editing to do and I am excited to have all this information now to make my stories better from the beginning. I was so happy to meet some new people and finally meet in person some of the people I only knew from their blogs and online critique groups. Here's looking forward to working hard this year and to conference next year.
