On my Kindle: Manhunting by Jennifer Crusie
Talk Back – Tell us how you write!
What do you think? Now that Jenn has made us all totally jealous with her RWA photos, I feel like I am totally missing out.
Yet, unlike her, I have no real reasons to justify the price of going to a writing conference right now. I don’t have any book to sign, no agent or editor to meet and while I would love to learn more about the craft by attending the many workshops offered, the benefits would not outset the costs for me at this time. If I’d go, it would be a total splurge just for a little time out and to meet all my writer friends.
And I’m afraid that right now I don’t think attending writing conferences are necessary for me to reach my current goal (make a sale).
That said, this is only my own opinion and I may totally be wrong. So I turn to you for input. Do you think writers need to go to writer conferences to meet their goals? Is it different for writers at different stages of their careers? Are some conferences more useful than others?
What is your experience and thoughts on this?
