Since getting back from DFWcon, a writing conference in Dallas, I have been super motivated. Therefore I have decided three things.
1) I will be published sooner than later (mind over matter)
2) I am going to take my destiny into my own hands
3) I will post more on my blog so that everyone can follow my journey as a writer. (Look for postings three times a week, as this seems to be the magical number!)
But I will get back to these three things in a second.
Back to DFWcon. It was...amazing. I am not going to lie, I was scared about going by myself. I can be shy at times, so I have to make a conscious choice NOT to be shy. The first night I was at the hotel I was going down to the restaurant to eat and to see if I could spot other writers and *maybe* go up to them. I didn't have to go far. When I got to the elevators I met one. When we got to the restaurant we met more. And before I knew it I was meeting people! I no longer had to worry about being the wallflower in the corner of the room! YAY!
On top of meeting wonderful writers, I also was able to go to classes and learn more about the craft of writing. And believe me, it IS a craft! When the conference was over, I left feeling motivated and hyped!
So back to my three things. I am going to repeat these three things to myself everyday. And before I know it, I will be published!
