WriteOnCon 2014!

I just wanted to put up a quick post reminding everyone that WriteOnCon starts today!!  You can find a schedule of the programs here and of course the forums are up and running.

My current WIP is not finished but I put it up in the forums anyway (the first 250 words and first 5 pages) along with a rough query letter.  Already, I've received great feedback.  If you've never done WriteOnCon, I encourage you to check it out.  It's free!!

Update on Class

It's time for another Insecure Writer's Support Group post.  This is a blog hop so please check out the other insecure writer's here.

I want to start with an update on the writing class I've been taking.  It's been awesome!  The instructor runs it more like a reading group so every week three people submit the first 30 pages of their book.  I've found it so interesting to read all of the different styles and to hear our instructor point out places where the writer can improve.  My story is next week so I will let you know what everyone says!

I don't think I'm going to be finished in time to submit to Brenda Drake's Pitch Wars this year.  I'm so sad because it sounds awesome.  Stephsco commented on my blog last month and told me about it.  Thank you!  Hopefully they will do another one in the spring?  

On a brighter note, it looks like WriteOnCon is coming back this year!  I wasn't sure what was going on with them but they posted an update just the other day.  I'll definitely submit at least a query.  I'm pretty sure you can submit as long as you make a note that your work is still in progress.

So that's it for now.  Things are good.  I feel very productive and I'm pretty sure I have the class to thank for that.  I'm kind of kicking myself for not taking one earlier... but why dwell on the past.  Have a happy August, everyone!

I'm going to leave you with a photo of Samson.  He's finishing my book for me.  :)
