This week on IF I HAD TIME I talked about Genre Conventions and their importance to the writer. A life that can sometimes be a solitary one even with all the voices in your head. Another reason it is important to attend is for the networking, a chance to step outside of their daily life and to recharge and energize. A couple hints on how to register for conventions for free were given.
I also talked about last week's convention that I attended in Cleveland, www.clevelandconcoction.org. It’s a local one for me so I was able to attend each day and return to the comfort of my own bed each night. It’s not the same as getting away for the weekend completely, but still energizing.
