Write On Conference

Are you checking out all the great information at If not, you should!!

I love THIS POST by editor Molly O'Neill about giving yourself permission. Like I got goosebumps and teared up a little, that's how much I loved it. Here are just a couple of the gems you can find there:

"Permission to wander your way into telling stories completely unlike those you perhaps once thought you would write.
Permission to start writing something new—totally, gloriously new—even if the thought terrifies you. Especially if the thought terrifies you.
Permission to admit that a story you’ve been trying to write isn’t working, or isn’t actually something that you love writing anymore, and to liberate yourself from it. And then, to start something new. (See above!)"

There's SO much more, so go and read it.

Lots of other helpful blog posts and vlogs. I even did one - on romance in YA, complete with a cupcake theme.

I think it's a really cool idea - an on-line conference that offers a variety of topics from authors, editors, and agents. The organizers have done an AMAZING job! I can't even imagine how much work has gone into it. 

Anyway...write on!


  1. Your cupcake themed lesson today was awesome Lisa! You gave me some really good stuff to work with. Thank you!

  2. Your cupcake-themed vlog about romance in YA is not only charming but also filled with such excellent advice! Well done! :)
