|Kelley Lynn and me|
We had some great talks. Author, Kathi Appelt gave a great talk about understanding your character. She gave us ways to look at our characters and exercises to do to get to know your character better.
YA author, Sarah Zarr gave a wonderful talk about emotional pacing and the emotions of your characters. And Marcia Hoehne gave a fantastic workshop on how to get more ideas and if you have a lot of them, how to decide which one you should write. They were all very informative and I learned so much.

It was a great time. If you've never been to a conference I would definitely suggest going to one. This one was perfect. It wasn't to big, so not over whelming. And not to small that it wasn't informative enough.
On a side note...Friday I'm being spotlighted by the lovely ladies over at Falling For Fiction. So, If you want to find out more about me, head over there Friday.
