Just got back from a wonderful conference in Park City. Well, at least I heard it was wonderful. I had the distinct pleasure of running the Pitch Appointments with the agents from NY. Yes, the big wigs is who I spent the weekend waiting on, making sure they had enough chocolate and plenty of writers to talk to. It's a thankless job, but someone has to do it. I did get to hear a couple of great keynote speakers, and well that's what draws people into a conference, isn't it?
All that aside. I did learn some really interesting things. I told one agent that I really don't enjoy blogging, tweeting, FBing, or any of the social stuff. I prefer to meet people face to face at book signings, out on the road, etc. However, when I'm at home and have a few minutes to spare, I'd rather write than do all the social media.
She laughed and said actually she liked to hear that, it meant I'm a writer first and the rest is secondary to me. However, I needed to try a bit harder to be out there. So here is my New Year's Resolution. I know, I know, it's not New Years, but I can start early, can't I?
I vow to spend some time making my presence know. FB is really giving me a headache, as my poor computer is really having a time, but my phone on the other hand is sort of handy that way. I also vow to try to be more out there on my blog.
I know it's paranormal, but that pretty much discribes me. Not really normal. So, besides my boring life, kids, horses, dogs etc. I've decided to share a bit more of myself here. So stay tuned for the weirdness that is me.
I love to watch Paranomal Witness and the Dead Files, not really the norm, but I've had experiences that I hope someone else has had, so I don't feel alone. What sort of strange stuff have you seen? Let's compare notes.
So, homework for me. I will post once a week, and I'm going to be asking for things that go along with my experiences and what I see on the off-beat shows on TV.
Let me know if you've ever considered there might be something behind the monster stories. In Paranormal Witness, two men tracked a creature that walked on two legs, had claws on the end of the toes, and lived in a cabin in the woods. The man had yellow eyes, and kept to himself. When he died, they went to the cabin and found absolutely no personal items there. Just a steel room with Chains and Locks. Sounds like The Vampire Diaries to me. How about you? Ever seen wierd tracks? TELL ME ABOUT IT!!!!!
