One White Room To Go, Please

The Moonlight & Magnolias conference is over, and I’m happy to report we all lived. 

Not that we weren’t pee-in-your-pants nervous about the editor/agent appointments, ’cause we were. But after all our hard work to memorize our pitches, we learned that the memorization wasn’t as important as knowing the material. Makes sense when you think about it, but as far as we knew, a pitch session was going to be only slightly less painful than being burned at the stake. 

The conference itself was awesome, and it was amazing to meet so many talented people. The schedule was jam-packed with workshops and seminars from first thing in the morning until way past my usual bedtime. Every one of us agreed we learned things we can put to use in our writing right now, and that’s invaluable.

Zzzzzzzzzzzz....Of course, when I say ‘right now,’ I mean ‘when we recover.’ We drove home in a state of complete burnout. The extroverts in the group were able to keep chatting, but the introverts (like me) were barely able to keep from curling into a fetal position. It may take a few days of rest, preferably in a white room with no stimulus, to get past the information overload and the lack of sleep.

Once I’m past my catatonic state, I’ll see if I can relate a few tidbits. As usual, all names will be withheld to protect the guilty. 🙂

  1. Hey now, I’m recovered enough to do a load of laundry, heat up dinner (can’t say I actually cooked), written 3 thank you notes and over 450 words so far. I didn’t chat that much. Just slouched down, closed my eyes and worked out the Mack and Kristie reunion scene in my head.
