The staying power of events like this weekend’s Writer's Digest Conference comes down to one thing: Momentum. It's energizing being in the company of so many like-minded people—the solidarity is encouraging, and the enthusiasm is contagious.
Perhaps best of all, you don’t have to attend in person to pick up on the positive energy. If you haven't been following the real-time recaps of conference sessions here on the blog and on Twitter via the #wdc12 hashtag, it's not too late to catch up now! Previous posts are right here for your perusal, and the #wdc12 Twitter feed is still going strong today.
Here's a sampling of some of our favorite tweets from the weekend:
Writers have choices: Look for publishing partners that have direct-to-consumer links. Traditional NY publishers don't. #BarryEisler #wdc12
Believe that there is somebody out there who has been waiting their whole life to read the book you have inside you. #ChrisBaty #wdc12
#DailyPlatform So much of writing career success is just being willing to suit up and show up. Glad to see so many doing this! @ #WDC12
Like what you see? If you weren’t able to attend this year but are interested in future WD events, mark your calendars now for next year’s New York conference in January 2013. Details won’t be far behind!
