The day was long and the night is growing short. My session at 10am (“Finishing Your First Novel – A Three-Pronged Attack”) went very well (p.s., for the folks who were there and are looking for the supporting material). Elizabeth Kostova‘s keynote was informative and entertaining, and Colson Whitehead‘s session was an absolute laughfest. I also got to meet Jeremiah Chamberlin of Fiction Writers Review, Dan Wickett of Dzanc Books, and a great number of the Third Annual Writer’s Conference participants.
Up tomorrow is the author breakfast at 8:30am and then the debut novel panel with Katie Crouch at 1:30pm. I’m looking forward to attending the Place as Theme panel with Colson Whitehead, Valerie Laken, and Steve Amick at 3pm. Everything after the breakfast is free and open to the public, so if you are in the area, please stop by the AABF street festival!
