I just spend a marvelous 3/4 hour listening to Ridley Pearson share fun and insightful anecdotes from his life and writing–everything from a travel experience that became a metaphor for writing novels to the moment when the research he’d done for a book helped to solve a real-life murder. I think we all left feeling we could have listened for a long, long time.
Last night I sat in on the Night Owl session about brainstorming groups, and it occured to me that I haven’t had that kind of relationship with my fellow writers, the kind where you feel full comfortable and trusting to share your process from the very start. I’m still a baby writer in comparison with many here at the conference, and I’m only just beginning to truly appreciate the cameraderie of other writers. Thanks, guys!
