Using What You Learn

The more you know, the greater your responsibility.IMG_7501 2to3

“You have a big responsibility,” I told her at the end of the writers conference.

Through a weekend packed with twelve class hours and six keynotes, she’d learned a lot. Now would come applying what she learned.

She already had a speaking ministry. Her nonfiction sample I’d evaluated showed great potential.

But she was behind the curve in presenting her material online — either to publicize her work or to enable access by online readers. She’s more relational than a techie.

“Shouldn’t be a problem,” I said. “Find people who are. Concentrate on what you do well, and enlist the help of people with the website and technical skills you lack.”

With a third of the conference’s sessions devoted to promotion and marketing, she’d been given access — either live or through recordings — to what she needs to apply.

I hope she does.
