Just got back a few hours ago from the Central Canada Lit Festival, and was really glad I went! While many of the talks information was not new to me, it was great to speak to those experienced with both traditionally published and self published. So many very knowledgeable people. Also great to meet some new people, and even make a few new friends. That might be the biggest reason to have gone, to put myself out there, and find those in the sane place that I am at. Writing short stories, getting rejection emails, editing a finished novel, thinking about new stories, and being in the mind set of a writer.
So I am hoping to refocus my writing again. The end of the school year is close, and that means more time for writing, as students are done with school, they go to work, and so must I...on my writing.
