Time has been flying lately! I can't believe the school year is almost out. I'm trying to tell myself I'll write more once school is out. (But I have this vague memory from the end of last summer where I told myself I'd write more once school started . . .)
For those that don't know it yet, the first Wednesday of the month is Insecure Writers Support Group day. The day for us to shout our insecurities into the world! Big thanks to Alex J. Cavanaugh (IWSG founder and amazing writer and person) and his awesome cohosts, Eva Solar Melanie Schulz, Lisa-Buie Collard, and Stephen Tremp!
This month I'm going to Storymakers, a big writing conference in Utah. I'm super, super excited! I know I'll be meeting some of my favorite online people IN REAL LIFE! And seeing a few of my critique partners again, which is so wonderful.
But (there's always a but, isn't there?) I'm nervous too. I'm not a naturally social person. I don't make great first impressions. I'm awkward and dorky and I never know how to react to other human beings when they talk to me.
Thankfully I know I'll have a few good friends with me who've done this conference before and will be there to help me out.
How about you? Are you good at the social networking stuff? Or are you awkward and shy like me? And anyone else going to Storymakers? I'd love to see y ou!
