Southern California Writers’ Conference February 12, 2009

It’s this weekend! I’m very excited – it looks like there will be some good seminars offered. And, I get to see my online writing buddies again! This will be my third time at the conference, and I’m hoping for the same sort of inspiring, light-a-fire-under-my-arse sort of motivation that I’ve gotten from the first two. What better way to spend a weekend than studying the craft I love, and being with people who share my passion?

Currently Reading: SON OF A WITCH by Gregory Maguire. I really love this author. He creates richly textured worlds, and his characters are all flawed, complicated, and intriguing.

According to this month’s issue of California Westways, the magazine put out by AAA, Southern California is the number one book-buying market in the country. I guess that means we are more than just a bunch of dim wit surfer dudes and valley girls. We READ! The magazine doesn’t list its source, but I’ll just take their word for it. Who needs sources to prove that So Cal kicks ass? Boo-yah!
