Stephanie Black (right) introducing Janette Rallison (left)

I feel like I’ve been backstage at a rock stars of writing concert! I got to meet most of my favorite living authors: Shannon Hale (yes, I’m counting our five-minute walk into the conference together, even if I only said five words #fangirlingsohard), Janette Rallison (so nice!), Stephanie Black (hilarious), and Dan Wells (awesome singer). 20180504_123923I am now so chock full of writing tips that I’m not sure I can write. 😀 Seriously though, it was humbling to discover how many writers carefully construct their stories (the plotters). My stories are like a movie in my head and I never know how they’re going to end (I’m a “pantser” as in writing “by the seat of my pants”). Even more humbling was discovering partway through the first day that my name badge had flipped over and the back side said “special.” Doh!
