Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there. ~~ Will Rogers
I think I have recovered sufficiently from the writer’s conference trip to have a little reality-based perspective in terms of observations:

First, I did not learn all that freaking much about the writing process.  I just made that up. I did, however, love Sara Paretsky and the Q Brothers.

Second, what I did learn was that I had an unrealistic expectation of the weekend.  I clearly made that up, too.

Third, those unrealistic expectations lead me to reconsider this business of writing.

Forth, I came to the realization that my writing journey cannot follow anyone else’s path.

And finally, I am back to the business at hand, which is working on my mystery novel.  On my own path.  Alone.

And now, that is all I will evermore have to say about that conference experience.
