Dear Bloggers

I've been blogging over a year now and I try to comment on many of your blogs.

This is what I've learned.

1) We all write.
2) We're all pretty awesome
3) We're all funny.
4) We all long for some sort of human connection (not in that creepy Avatar way) otherwise we wouldn't be blogging.
5) We all LOVE books, writing and awesomeness.

Ok. So I'm really nervous now, because I'm going to suggestion some... Hold on! **off to check my hair looks ok and there's no food in my teeth**

I think we should meetupatawritersconferenceorsomething.

I talk fast when I'm nervous.

Let's try that again...
I'm suggesting we meet up at a writers conference or something.

There are TONS of cool conferences coming up in 2011.

I know-- I'm throwing it out there very early BUT conferences require a few things:

1) Money
2) Knowing which conference we want to go to
3) Money
4) A piece of writing worth pitching to someone
5) Childcare

So, who's interested?  

Sort of terrified to hit Publish Post-- doing it anyway.


  1. Alicia and I have been talking about just this actually. Trying to decide how to go about it ;) Good to know we aren't the only ones thinking about it!

  2. It's not such a crazy idea. Will you be at the SCBWI winter conference in NYC? If so, it's a perfect place to meet other writers. I'll be there :)

  3. It's a good idea! I was looking at conferences. I'm not sure I'll be able to swing it this year (for two of the five reasons listed above) but I'll listen up to what people are planning and try to make it if I can.

  4. Doesn't sound crazy to me :-) If we end up at the same conference, I'd definitely want to meet in person!

  5. Hey, I love meeting up at conferences with bloggers. This year I've met probably 10-15 of my followers, and I'm hoping to meet a whole lot more next year. I'm probably hitting 7 or 8 conferences this year, so hopefully you'll be at one of them. :)

  6. I'm on the wrong continent, but I just wanted to comment and cheerlead--I think it's an awesome idea, wish I could do it!
