WriteOnCon Nightly Recap

Holy commas (totally stole that from Jodi Meadows!), today was AMAZING!!!
First, we want to thank everyone for enduring with us during the many learning curves we've been pitched. Believe it or not, this is the first conference any of us have put together, and there are about forty million things that can go wrong. I think only 39 million of them happened today, so hopefully, you'll stick around until tomorrow to see if the other one million can happen. Hey, it's an adventure, right? Right.
Second, prize winners. In case you weren't in the live panel, here they are:
Rissa Watkins won the 10-page MS critique from Lindsey Leavitt!
~SHANNON~ (blogger handle) won the query critique from Mandy Hubbard!

Congrats! Please email us at writeoncon (at) gmail.com for instructions to submit.
Third, if you missed anything from this morning or while you were at work, or whatever, here is the schedule, all linked up to the events. And you can always access our archives. We do have transcripts of the chats, and we are in the process of uploading Mark's live video workshop to our YouTube site.

Thank you, and good night!

  1. Thank you guys for all your hard work and your quick thinking to put the posts on your blogs.
    But how did people access the live chats? I never could get past the Error message.

  2. SO bummed that I can't get into the site! I've tried everything (clearing caches, restarting, different browsers) but I still get the 403 error. Would love to be able to see the chats and everything. It sounds like it's awesome.

  3. Thank you Shannon Whitney Messenger for the blog post recaps - all of which I'm still reading through. They're so handy to have and very useful, especially for someone like me still on the fringes of the writing community, thank you!

    Take care

  4. I can't thank you enough, not just you Shannon, as I know most of the others are working (almost) as hard, but this is YOUR blog, so ... you know. THANKS!

  5. Ditto on all praise -- absolutely fantastic series, and so I appreciate the work and time from everyone! Thank you!


Yay-I love comments! Thank you so much! (But please remember to keep your comments spoiler-free. Also, I try to keep this a happy, positive place. Any arguing or intense debate--on any subject will be removed. Let's keep this a safe, fun space.
