La!Percy

And Finally, Conference Rundown!

Per usual, I'm aware that not everyone may care to read a description of every panel I attended at the splendiferous James River Writers Conference, so I will put all that under a cut. For the short version, I'll say that I had an awesome time - and got to have cool conversations with not one, but two literary agents!

I just finished reading How Not to Write a Novel. Hilarious and insightful. I particularly love the observation that potentially tricky scenes, like sex scenes, are not half as good if they're done halfway well, just as half a kitten is not half as cute as a whole kitten. Also, hilarious "doing it wrong" examples.
