Nearly two years ago I had the desire to create an inspirational conference for my readers. Writing a novel, starting a businesses, and getting married were huge (and happy) distractions from this dream. Now I’m proud to say on Saturday, May 17, I will be hosting a conference for writers!
This is a fast pace conference with 7 presenters sharing a wide range of writing expertise, from freelance work, to mentoring, to getting an agent, to publishing. After the presentations, there will be an hour to socialize and network with the presenters. My hope is that people will leave this conference with practical tips, motivation, and a larger support network for their dreams. And it’s FREE!
Here’s the link to register. Space is limited, so please only register if you’re absolutely positive you can come.
So how did I get this dream rolling?
- I developed the idea as I went along. All I knew was that I wanted quick presentations with lots of socializing. When I started asking people to join me, they shared their ideas and it was easy to incorporate them into my general concept.
- I focused on the little steps. If I had thought about everything that I had to do to organize the event, I probably would have gotten overwhelmed. Instead, I only emailed one person a day.
- I thought about it like it was already successful. For a while I only had one person confirmed, but I talked about the event like it was already well established. This sense of delusion not only helped others believe in the idea, but it helped me stay committed.
- I was selfish. I kept thinking about what I wanted to see, and what I wanted from a conference. Now I have a conference that I would love to go to, and I’m certain others would enjoy as well.
I hope you can join us at the conference!
