WriteOnCon Recap, Day 2

The nice thing about an online conference is that when life gets in the way, you don't have to miss out. My day was busy, but wonderful, ending with a campfire sing-a-long with my kids and their friends. But I didn't get to sit around in my pjs like Tuesday.

Not to worry! I can catch up between appointments today, and also try to keep up with the new workshops. Here's a rundown of what you may have missed yesterday--like me:

  1. Thanks so much, Debbie, for these links! For various reasons, I've not been able to get involved with WriteOn, but you've made it very easy to dip in and out... I'm going to start with "The Shakeover Makeover/Shake Your PB Til it Shines," "Irresistable PB Characters," and "Middle Grade's Got Heart..."

    Thanks again :-)

  2. I've enjoyed the picture book segments. The PB Characters was my favorite. It's been fun to jump in and watch/read the conference materials when I have a minute.

  3. I wasn't able to get on today! Hopefully I can catch up on day 2 & 3 tomorrow. I've been doing back to college shopping with my daughter--fun times! We even ducked into Borders and each found a few good things. I bought her Ann Lamott's Bird by Bird for her 20th birthday on Saturday. :)
