Last year I found a very inspirational and beneficial online writing conference while I was searching for an in-person writing conference. I was planning on attending a writing conference this year, but priorities and goals altered a bit since baby making is now in process.
By the way, our baby is a BOY and his name is Clay.
In 13-ish weeks, Baby Clay will be outside of my belly and motherhood will commence. I’m very happy/scared witless about this. I tell myself that it’s a good thing that I’m scared, that I wouldn’t be a good mom if I didn’t care enough about my child to be apprehensive. I don’t know if this is true, but it’s currently how I get by. I’ve read lots of books and advice online, and I am sure that instinct will take over. Oh! And Husband and I have raised two dogs, so surely, combining these things will prepare me for…you know…not harming him. Here’s the deal: There will soon be this tiny, innocent, precious life whose survival will depend on me. That’s a lot to take in. And I love him so already, and if anything/one were to hurt him, most particularly if I were to hurt him, I would be beyond devastated. Woah, that got heavy. Let’s move on.
The conference is free and all you have to do is sit down at your computer and take in all the knowledge. Professionals from all over contribute, and I learned a lot about writing and the industry, as this time last year I was just getting super serious about my book. Everything is archived as well, so if you have to work (like I do) you can check it out after.
Thank you to all the wonderful people who put this online conference together and, without further ado, the link:
