WriteOnCon - Holy Cow

If you've been living under a rock (or maybe just not reading any blogs lately), you may not know that WriteOnCon has been going on.  It's basically a writers convention on the 'Net.  And it's FREE!  Oh, and I hope they don't mind me putting their logo up on this post.  I had nothing to do with making it, but it's pretty cool.

I've been following along where I can and reading what I can, but it just astounds me how much there is going on in this awesome virtual convention.  From one perspective, it's really cool.  From another though, it's a bit daunting.  There are so many events going on, so many webcasts, and so many well-written articles to read that I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with all the information.  If this is what a "real" convention is like, I can see it being just as awesome and daunting.

The cool part is they seem to be covering topics across the board, and no matter whether you are a seasoned author or putting pen to paper for the first time, there's information for everyone.  If you haven't popped in and checked things out, I highly encourage it.

If you have been participating or reading along like I have, share your favorite part with us.

Everyone who is participating seems to be learning a lot!

Alex - I definitely am. I haven't been able to jump into much when it's been "live", but I do check it out after the fact.

I haven't had nearly as much time to take part as I did last year. It's still awesome though, even without me.

Thanks for explaining this. I've been seeing people talk about it all over, but never got around to figuring out what it is.

Sounds interesting. I've never actually attended a virtual convention.
