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.
