Networking

Conferences are a great way to figure out where your writing stands in the scheme of things. They’re also a way to add to your list of writing friends and find a agent for your next project. I’m one of the first people to say don’t give up too soon on marketing your work. But we keep writing and moving forward too. I don’t think we should stop writing just because we haven’t sold something. I’ve been focusing more on work in progress now.

KillerNashville is a great conference if you’re working on mysteries or thrillers.  The Midwest Writers Conference was lots of fun too although I think the mystery writers are a tighter lot than some of my other writing friends. A special treat at both the MWW and KillerNashville was William Kent Kruger. Special thanks to him! The agents at KillerNashville and Beth are also in order. I do like their agent/editor round tables.
