Going to my very first writer's conference this weekend, and leaving in less than six hours.
I'm going to get a book signed by Joyce Carol Oates.
I'm going to pitch my book to an editor.
And I'm going to learn lots of stuff, and have lots of fun.
Wish me luck!
If you don't feel that you are possibly on the edge of humiliating yourself, of losing control of the whole thing, then possibly what you are doing isn't very vital. If you don't feel like you are writing somewhat over your head, why do it? If you don't have some doubt of your authority to tell this story, then you are not trying to tell enough. --John Irving
