Over the weekend I attended the League of Utah Writers’ Conference in Salt Lake City. I had a great time meeting authors, learning in the workshops, and drooling over all the delicious-looking books. I was impressed by how friendly everyone was. Instead of being competitive, everyone was open and cheerful as they cheered each other on, congratulated each other on their successes, and encouraged new writers to do their best and not give up. The workshops were excellent and renewed my enthusiasm for what I am attempting to do. I can hardly wait to dive into some of the books I discovered. Thank you, LUW, for a great experience.
