I'm finally getting around to posting about the LDStorymakers Conference I attended a couple weekends ago here in Utah. It was my first time there and was AMAZING! Join me next year because I know I'll be back.
I started with the Publication Primer in a small class with none other than Elana Johnson at the healm. We had a copy of everyone's first chapter ahead of time and were able to discuss them in class. I received such great positive feedback--it made me THAT much more excited for my current manuscript.
The next day I had my first pitch session ever with an agent. I was soooo nervous, but made it through with a full request. Woo-hoo.
The last day I was surprised with a second place prize for my first chapter. Got my picture taken, a big box of conference bling, and a lot of wonderful comments from the judges on my chapter.
What an amazing experience!
Speaking of conferences, I will be back at this one come June. I can't wait. (And how did THREE of my critique partners make it into the video and not me??? Hmm???)
