- there are creepy weirdos on Twitter
- Jefferson Davis is not, in fact, the same person as Abraham Lincoln
Yes, those are kind of inside jokes, but you see? I made writer friends with whom they are inside jokes! So, YAY!
I learned one or two other things as well, and I will be sure to blog those in the coming weeks. ;) But seriously, I was thrilled to have been a part of such a nice conference, and I’m even more excited that it’s within driving distance from good old H’burg!
If you’ve been toying with the idea of checking it out or with getting involved with an online writing community, I hope you’ll give us a whirl. It’s a great group of writers, who are always willing to help out one another. We’ve got subgroups by geographical area and genre, forums, bloggity and linkerly (wha??) resources, monthly live chats, writing programs, a critique corner, contests, we’re planning an IRL workshop for 2011 (!) . . . and just general awesomeness.
If you’re a write-brained individual, check us out—I mean, where else are you going to fit in society? We’re all pretty much screwed, so we might as well stick together!
I promise not to become obnoxious with the pimpage, but if you join us and can assist in spreading the word, I’d def be grateful.
Just a reminder, you’ve got until 11:59 PM EST on Friday, Oct. 15 to get your gnome puns in the comments of my review of Chuck Sambuchino’s How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack. The best one (winner chosen by me) will receive either a query or up to 5-page critique from the Class 1 gnome slayer himself.
