The Post Conference Blues

Okay, okay, so I’m a day late (and much more than a dollar short) on my blog post. I should’ve known going into the 3-day Florida Writers Association Conference that I wouldn’t have the energy to turn on my laptop, let alone the urge or desire to blog Sunday afternoon. Especially not with a comfy bed in sight and football on TV. But I had too much to prepare leading into the conference to write the post and schedule it beforehand, so here’s your Monday morning dose of Method madness.

Now faced with the dreaded work week (back to life, back to reality,) I’m already missing the excitement and creative energy that surrounded me during the FWA conference. In case you’re not familiar with it, it’s the annual writing conference for the Florida Writers Association where hundreds of FL scribblers get together to geek out, share their ideas and projects, gush about their dreams and passions, network with others in the industry, learn about craft/publishing/marketing, eat loads of food, pitch projects to agents and publishers, win awards and door prizes, and eat some more. The best way for me to pay homage to the experience is to take all that positive energy and redirect it into my writing projects. And that’s what I intend to do. The Rogues are all busy with various personal and collaborative writing efforts, so stay tuned, because you’ll continue to hear exciting news from us.

We now have a new way you can follow (literally) along and stay informed on Rogue news. We have a Twitter account under the username of “MethodWriters”:

So please check us out, Follow us and we’ll Follow you back. And don’t be afraid to “@ Connect” us or send us a direct message–we’d love to hear from you.

Have a great week and go out and get your Method on!!

    LOVE IT!! Yes indeed, the FWA has us fired up to finish those great projects, once again. Did some super workshops and met wonderful new people.

    I too, am a blog behind at my personal blog, getting home Sunday afternoon to find a client deadline looming and a very leaky water heater. Needless to say, I was writing late and my blog wasn’t what I got written. LOL.

    EVERYONE should get to at least one writing conference a year. The knowledge, kinship, energy and comradery is just a fabulous energy boost! Can’t wait to see your polished version of “Dreamer”…

      Sorry about the water heater! 😦 Don’t feel bad about your blog though, my personal blog is way overdue for a new post. But…Dreamer is definitely taking top priority right now! Have a wonderfully creative week!!
