My adorable friend Olivia and I went to a Writers and Readers Conference at UVU yesterday. It was SO fantastic. I got to hear from fabulous authers like Brandon Sanderson (Mistborn series and finisher of Wheel of Time), James Dashner (13th Reality and soon to be released Maze Runner), Stephen Covey, Maria Covey Cole, Rachel Nunes, and Tristi Pinkston. Also so many others, I just didnt get a chance to hear from them all like Josi Kilpack, J. Scott Savage, Lisa Mangum, Annette Lyon, Patrick Muir, Anita Stansfield and Robison Wells (and more).
Shout out to my hubs was sweet enough to play with the kids all day while I went a learnin'. I even came home to a cleaner-than-I-left-it house. Brownie points.
Obviously the conference was attended by a lot of writers but I got to thinking: If I could do anything in the business, what would I be. I think my top few choices would be reader (you know, someone who actually gets paid), a publicist and perhaps a writer.
I know unlike my movie question a while ago, not everyone is as eager to work in this field. Are you? What would tickle your fancy?
Also I caved. If you want to follow me on twitter my name is.....cranberryfries.
