Went to the 2017 Writers Digest Annual Conference in NYC August 18-20. I arrived late on the 17th. It was my first time in New York and my first writer’s conference. The choices for sessions were wide and plenty of opportunities to change the path that I took while attending.

The people that I met while there were friendly, helpful, and from diverse backgrounds. I was able to step out of my comfort zone and invite some strangers to join my table for supper, only to leave with some new friendships started. It was the trend for the weekend, making new friends, while learning more about the craft of writing.

I met some new cheerleaders and some people that enriched my life by being apart of it. I met people who I was proud to have met after hearing more of their story.

Pitch slam was a challenge. Now that I have made it through one, I have an better idea of what to expect and what I need to do to prepare for next year. I will be ready for next year with the goal of having a pitch ready to present and impress those who hear it.

Thanks  #WDC17 for the memories and the fire that was lit to finish it.
