One goes to this sort of event hoping for helpful information, maybe some inspiration, maybe some motivation. If you're lucky, you get an epiphany - and I got lucky and I got two. Thanks to Ken Miyamoto I clarified a direction for my writing over the next few months and thanks to Jane Friedman I have an exciting new venue through which to promote and share that creative output.
Someone has been a bad boy and allowed four months to go by without posting on his blog. I expect that to change moving forward and will post tomorrow and the next day on first Ken's insights and then I will share Jane's information as well.
