Summer Camp 2010

Yes, the most recent idea is to attend Karen Mahoney's Summer Camp for Writers. I am doing it more or less for networking rather than keeping writing in check. As far as writing goes, the big schedule I am keeping takes care of the writing. I have put in the commitment and even though I am not entirely active [scariest exam creeps in, you know] at the moment, I have it covered. But this is an extra chance to add structure to my writing and have the opportunity to network with other writers.

What's your opinion? Do you find these sort of events helpful or do you take on the lone wolf mentality?

I've wanted to go to one of these for a long time but never have.

Since writing is such a solitary activity, it's fun to feel like others are writing along with you, sort of cheering you on. So, I'm all about these type of events, especially if I'm working on something new.

Hope you're doing well!!!

@ Charles: I find myself often so involved in myself that I lose track of the days and usually miss out on the dates, when I am supposed to state progress and network.

@ Brian: Howdy, all is relatively insane, which I always find positive and glad to see you on board as well. I have seen that Karen has singled you out for us to keep an extra eye on you. :D
