Miami this weekend!

I’m really looking forward to my first conference of the year, the Wizarding World of Writing conference held by SCBWI Florida (which you should know I’m attending because it’s on our nifty new calendar over yonder).  I’ll be doing some manuscript critiques, a fantastic “Psst! Wanna Know a Secret” agent panel with fabulous agents Erin Murphy and Sarah Davies, and a workshop on social networking.  I’ll also be spending time with the amazing faculty, which includes editors and authors I very much respect and admire.  What can I say?  I love publishing!

But I’m really here to ask for your help.  As I mentioned, I’m doing a workshop on social networking, officially titled “I’m Mad as Hell, and I’m Not Going to Tweet It Anymore!”  I have a good presentation put together about my perspective, but I’m wondering if our amazing blog readers have any questions they’d like answered or wisdom they’d like to share.  I want to make sure I’m addressing what writers are thinking (and worrying) about, not just what’s on my mind.  I have a lot of opinions, as you know!

Send me your thoughts in our new comments when you have a chance.  Doesn’t the redesigned site look great?

    Love the new site. That squeaky clean Flash element at the top is so hip and stylish!

    Tweeting: I find it really helpful when they direct me to content that I should see/need to know about but wouldn’t have found out about otherwise. I’m more interested in something you’ve read or an event you’re attending that I couldn’t get to. Less interested in the fact that you’re writing right this second, or what your word count is. There’s so much great stuff on the net that I need help drilling down to the stuff I actually need to read. I rely on writer/publishing industry friends I respect to point me to it via Twitter, and I try to return the favor.

    (I guess that wasn’t a question, really…more of a comment…)

      So glad you like the new site! Please do let us know if you have any other thoughts about it.

      That’s quite helpful to know what people want to see tweeted. It can be hard to decide what you’re going to fill your space with. Thanks!
