To go to conference or…go for coffee

That is the question 🙂

I was invited to join a group on Facebook, the OC Christian Writers’ Conference. Yay! It’s nice to be part of a group such as this one.

But I’ve hesitated on attending the conference that’s coming up in April. Why? Because the one book I wrote wasn’t as successful as I’d hoped, I still have a lot of work to do if I’m ever to become a good writer and the novels I’m currently working on aren’t in the “Christian” category. While part of me wants to go out of curiosity, or to simply meet people in that industry, the other part of me is saying I don’t belong. At least, not yet.

My friend is willing to go along with me. She sees something in my writing that I definitely do not see. So the question comes down to whether I can justify the cost of going. I’m sure any writer can understand. Investing in one’s self? That requires having a lot of confidence in my abilities.

    My first conference every, I went to answer the questions you bring up. Was I a writer? Did I belong? I even had to ask, what kind of writing should I do? Conferences are the right places to ask those questions, and this one is remarkably reasonable. For one, there’s no room and board or travel expense to speak of. 😉
