Hey Blogger Bunch! Since the 10-Facts-About-You post was such a hit, I thought it would be fun to play another get to know you game. We all got into blogging for a reason (maybe it was just to blog for fun or maybe you're trying to sell or promote your book). Whatever your motivation for starting a blog, let us know by re-posting your first post. If you think your first post is super boring and really says nothing, then re-post your favorite post. This will tell us all a little more about why you're blogging or maybe just a funny story to make your fellow Campaigners laugh.
Make sure to post a link to your blog in the comments so we can check it out :)
FIRST POST: March 13, 2011
Southern California Writers Conference (SCWC)
They told me I needed a website.
"What if I'm not even published yet..."
"You still need one."
I'm not sure if this counts as a website, but I guess it will do. Nothing but good came from the conference, so I suppose I should listen to their advice.
Not only did I meet two of the most amazing writers/friends at SCWC, the experience may end up being life changing. I submitted the first 20 pages of my completed manuscript for an advanced read with two agents and an author. I never thought the author would open the door to opportunity, but she did. She introduced me to a publisher who requested my full manuscript. It was more than I could have hoped for.
I waited for two weeks before I heard back from them, and was so excited when I read the email that I accidentally smashed a snail as the jumping and flailing ensued. Poor snail. Brian said it was his time to go.
They offered me a Winter 2012 publishing slot. It still hasn't sunk in. I sign the contract tomorrow.
Here we go...
