At the beginning of the month, I mentioned that I would be attending the Writer’s Digest Annual Conference in New York City in the first week of August. From there, I was going to visit family on Long Island for a much needed vacation. However, due to a family emergency, I’ve had to cancel my registration for the conference. I’ll still be going to New York, but all of my time will be spent on Long Island with my family.
Though it’s a bit upsetting that I won’t be able to make it to the conference, the good news is that this will give me more time to polish up my novel, Written in Silence, a little more. I’m in the midst of getting it critiqued and editing it accordingly. More on that another time.
I did want to attend this conference very much, however, my family is more important. To me, missing it isn’t that big of a deal. I’ll just go next year. By then my novel will be fully critiqued, which will be a great thing.
I just wanted to make sure all of you were aware that I wasn’t attending the conference this year, this way, when I didn’t give you updates from my experiences there, you’d know why. But, you’ll still get a post from me next week!
Have a wonderful day.
