I enjoyed my first writing conference yesterday. It was invaluable. All writers, aspiring all the way to published writers, must take advantage of the opportunity. Not only did I learn valuable information and writing tips, but also I gained one piece of much needed advice; I need to be in a critique group. Chris Schoebinger, a publisher who attended the conference, said if you want to be published, you must be in a critique group.
While at the conference, I found my critique group. Yah!!! A few of us decided that getting published was important enough to follow through with the advice. This excites me and should excite all aspiring writers to take this important step to making the dream of being published a reality.
