My Awesome Weekend

I had an awesome time at LDStorymakers this last weekend.

There's so many awesome thing's that happened that I probably can't list them all, but I will share a few highlights.

The classes were awesome as always. The friends and attendees were equally awesome. I was able to meet so many people that I'd only known on facebook before then.

The food was great and the conference was well organized. My only problem, and this is minor, was I wish I could clone myself and go to every class so I didn't have to miss anything.

I was able to do my very first podcast. It was awesome. I talked about fight scenes and writing action. It was great. I talked about my experiences in Tang Soo Do and how I write my action scenes. I participated in the mass book signing and it was great too. I was actually able to sit back and enjoy Saturday's lunch because I am no longer able to compete in the First Chapter Contest. What a relief.

The two most awesome highlights for me was getting my author pictures taken by the awesome Erin Summerill. I felt like a rockstar. I can't wait to see the pictures! (I also got two pictures taken by Heather Zahn Gardner. They're awesome too.) I love all of my talented friends!

The best part was I managed to eeek into a Pitch session with Alyssa Henkin of Trident Media. I was so nervous, but she is awesome and SO NICE. I was immediately put at ease and we had a great time. She really likes my idea and asked for a full.

I love Storymakers! I am who I am because of them. I've made every contact that has forwarded my author career at this conference. I've become the author I am now because of it.

LDStorymakers. . . you have a devoted fan. For life!

Storymakers really is a wonderful conference and experience! I came home feeling like I've learned so much more about the craft of writing, and also so enriched by the many kind people I was able to meet and get to know a little. Awesome people like you!
