Speed blogging

Joe’s Post #6 —

Once again, a quick post.

Pages written: 20

Pages rewritten: 10 (but I finally got the beginning to work!)

Villains created: One great one

Fabulous characters created: 2. Cinnamon and Sprite

Number of characters named after food I love: 2

Notes made to self: 1 (eat before I decide upon character names)

Pieces of pie eaten: None.

Number of characters named after pie: 0

Conference dinners attended: 1

Number of writers I talked to at conference: 20+

Number of women writers I talked to at conference: 18

Number of books sold: 0

Number of times I was told I was amazing and handsome: 0

Feeling after conference: Pretty positive (despite the above statistic.)

Hard to believe that a nerdy, shy, introvert like me could have a good time at the Surrey International Writers’ Conference Dinner but I did.  Ok, I may have had a glass of wine or two but, for the most part, it was great to be with other people who are struggling with all the same issues.

Writing can be a lonely thing to do but it was so very nice to know that I wasn’t alone.

  1. You do realize Joe, that when you become famous your groupies will shower you with cinnamon and Sprite? So don’t OD on them between now and then…. 🙂
