Simply attending recharges my batteries.
by Andy Scheer
For three wonderful days, I wasn’t alone in my pursuits.
I found myself among a crowd with similar goals — people who didn’t find my interests quaint, fruitless, or odd.
For three days I:
- learned more about my field
- passed information to willing listeners
- talked shop using insider shorthand
- got answers directly from experts
With abundant resources for sale, I spent every dollar I’d budgeted. I didn’t get much sleep, but I filled my mind and spirit.
After a weekend packed with back to back sessions, I came home exhausted but happy. Digesting the new material will take a year.
By then I’ll be ready to return. I’ve already marked the dates.
I hope you also have a favorite writers conference — a place you can grow in your knowledge and where for a few days, you don’t have to pretend to be normal.
