Writers on the Beach

I’m at the Novelist’s Inc. conference on St. Pete Beach this week, with old friends and new.  I attended last year and learned more in a day than I’ve learned in all the previous conferences I’d ever attended.  So back I went.

Ever wonder what writer’s talk about when we’re together? (And I don’t mean over umbrella drinks at the bar.)  Here are some of the titles of our workshops.

The Empowered Author: Publishing Math in an Age of Content Abundance.

Transmedia Storytelling.

Writing in Multiple Genres: Craft and Strategy.

Since NINC requires two published novels before joining,we’ve left behind topics like “how to write a synopsis” and “building better characters” and moved on to the business of writing.  And, of course, ebooks and self-publishing will be discussed until we can’t squeeze another ounce of information out of our speakers and our friends.

I’ll be back next Friday, hopefully with great new things to tell you.  Meantime, don’t be surprised if I return with a suntan.
