Borderland Press Writers Bootcamp

Man, I’m bad at blogging! I’m going to try to be better.

Speaking of resolutions, one of my writing resolutions for this year is to correct my slow editing tendancies by becoming a skilled, joyful editor. I don’t know if the joyful part will happen, but I’m headed to Balitmore today for a three day workshop to make me more skilled. I heard about this retreat from Patrick Freivald, an awesome horror writer I met at HWA’s Stokercon. He told me that the experience was painful, but kicked his writing up to the next level.

Oh man, that’s just what I wanted.

So as soon as I got home, I applied. It’s expensive, sure, but if you add up how much I’ve spent on editing books and editors, it doesn’t seem so bad. My hubby and I worked out the money and I was ACCEPTED! I’m going to be closed in a room with fifteen other writers, bigwig editors, and an eviscerating author, going over my last novel’s first 30 pages and concepts with a fine-toothed comb.

I’m shaking in my boots, guys.

I’ll let you know how it goes, but if you want to check out the Writers Bootcamp, click this link:

Wish me luck and lots of Band-Aids.
