‘Information Overload’ is a reality. I know, because I’m afflicted. Just home from four days at the Surrey International Writers’ Conference and my fuzzy brain refuses to offer up coherent words for a timely post of writing inspiration. Not that it doesn’t contain lots of said inspiration. It does. It’s just that the great helpings of it acquired this weekend are nestled away in sluggish grey matter that refuses to release it. I need to go to bed! Hence, a shortened version of my weekend’s highlights:
Awesome Thursday Master Class on ‘Next Level Fiction’ with James Scott Bell…
… who had the greatest gelskin for his laptop!
Daughter, Shari Green, winner of the SiWC Writing Contest, YA category.
There’s a brief podcast interview with Shari here.
Hundreds and hundreds of fellow writers, authors, editors, agents, and publishers making connections, attending workshops, sharing good ideas, good news, good fellowship, and good food.
Bottles of wine, late night gatherings, Tweeted directions.
(Of course there is no picture! Would you really expect one?)
A Silent Auction, huge Trade Show, books and bargains galore.
(I wanted one of everything!)
The Saturday evening Book Fair and its author book signings.
The annual rendition of “Mud, Mud, Glorious Mud” by Jack Whyte.
(Just ignore the bottle… a little pre-song fortification.)
There’s tons more, but eyes are glazing over. Have to sleep now.
To be continued….
