I love writing conferences, and I love 20 Books most of all. Each time I attend, I get a wave of energy.
It’s a time to meet friends I only see once a year and get excited about my dream job. Does it wear me out? Absolutely. I was on two panels, Police Procedurals, and Podcasting… and I stayed out drinking with my writing buddies for several nights in a row (not something I normally do).
The week started out with a Podium dinner. Very cool. The next day, I got to have dinner with Jeff Chaney and everyone at Variant publishing. I don’t even have the words for how awesome that was. So much talent and niceness in one place are rare.
On Wednesday, we (Keystroke Medium) hosted a meet-up at Top Golf. That was more fun than I should be allowed to have in one night.
The rest of the conference was one long conversation with friends broken up by a few hours of sleep here and there. Good times.
Anyway, I just wanted to check in and share all the good vibes I’m feeling right now.
