Just got back from the 2007 La Jolla Writers Conference outside San Diego and I'm trying to stay awake long enough to write this post ...
The conference was a lot of fun, and the Southern California coast, as expected, was beautiful. It was my first visit to San Diego. The conference attracted a lot of screenwriter attendees and instructors, which was a nice change. There was much talk about how the WGA strike was affecting things and potentially opening the way for new writers. The conference was jam-packed and a lot of work for writers, but I heard nothing but good things from attendees.
