This past weekend I attended the PNWA writer’s conference and it was awesome. I saw old friends from the UW Extension writing programs, heard some good talks(Robert Dugoni, James Rollins, Gerri Russel among others) and ate some ok food at the SeaTac Hilton hotel. Got some good feedback on my novel, some agent interest, and ideas on how to get in the most perfect shape I can right now before I send it off. In all it was a really fun time, about the best conference I’ve been to so far. And this was my sixth! Seems like I’m a long ways from sitting in Jim Thayer’s class talking about his ten rules of writing. But it’s been a great journey.
