By the time you read this I’ll probably be knee-deep in information overload at the RWA national conference. While the conference is a great place to learn new things, it is, more importantly, a great place to network and can be a great way to re-focus and re-energize one’s writing.
There are a number of great sessions on the agenda, many of them happening concurrently so I’ve been forced to make a valiant attempt to be in two places at one time. So far so good, though a magic teleportation device would certainly be a handy thing to have about now.
One set of sessions I’ve definitely made sure to attend are the hour-long “Writing Sprints.” The first such session was hosted by a couple of my favorite authors – Tawna Fenske and Kristan Higgins. It was appallingly early in the morning (for me at least), but was an opportunity I didn’t want to miss, even if I needed an extra-large jolt of caffeine to get me going.
There will be another such session today.
Care to join me? (Virtually, of course).
For those of you working away on a story (whether a first draft or a polished version on its way to publication), we’d love to hear a bit – whether it’s a scene, a paragraph, or even a phrase that you are especially pleased with and would like to share. Seriously – feel free to share.
If you don’t have a story in progress, or just want to work on something new, maybe today’s writing prompt will catch your creative fancy. This week we’ve got a theme based on Michaeline’s post on Saturday (“You Can Rent A Man in Japan”).
Here is today’s theme: “Rent a Man”
Here are today’s random words:
gurgle eye perfume bittersweet
famous contrast riddle forgotten
nightmare headstrong swindler forbidden
bluff voice abduction freak
Whether you’re sharing a bit of your current work or writing something fresh based on the writing prompt, we hope you’ll join us for today’s Story Time.
Happy writing to all!
