Webinars…Maybe I’m Catching up with the Millenium

Can you see me? Feebly waving an arm at you all, while I prop myself up against the wall? No, it’s not that bad! 🙂

I’m just being silly. I feel pretty great, actually, because I just sent the first (of two) chunks of The Critiquer’s Survival Guide off to my editor at Writer’s Digest. Happy Dance! But, yes, it’s a bit of a wimpy Happy Dance, because I am feeling just a tad brain fried. I was on deadline without any problem, but I did hit that adrenaline high that comes along with any “Do it NOW!” kind of focus. And I did stay up just a tiny bit late a night or two along the way.

So you’re not getting much of a blog today, but I did want to point you over to Jane Friedman’s post from last Tuesday. She’s talking about the series of “Webinars” that Writer’s Digest is starting this year. She lists the ones that are coming soon and gives a brief description of what you can do if you sign up for one.

This is the one I liked:

  • “Ask the presenter questions in real time”

Why am I interested, you ask? Besides the fact that these sound very cool? Well, because the current plan is for ME to do one of these webinars for the critique book. I’LL be the presenter that people can talk to. VERY exciting. Me, who has only been out of the morass of dial-up connectivity for a few months!

Anyway, check them out. I’ll be thinking and planning about all this, after I finish writing.

    Congrats on submitting your chunks (oh, that sounded bad).

    I’ve never participated in a webinar before, but it does sound interesting. Sure beats paying hundreds of dollars on airfare, hotels and submission fees to attend a regular seminar.

    Hope you get some good rest. You deserve it.

    Becky, that’s the scoop! I think the oh so gracious and generous Queen of Critiquers deserves a crown, but hope this will do!

    The webinars sound awesome. I haven’t been too involved in these but really should get with the program.

    Jeannine, you are SO generous! It will MORE than do. 🙂

    PJ, They do sound fun, don’t they. I’m so deep into writing I haven’t thought too much about them, except maybe something along the lines of–well, THAT should be interesting! 🙂
