Storymakers Overload!

So ... this weekend was MADE of awesome. It was so amazing being in the same room with hundreds of other aspiring writers and published authors. Seriously. My brain sort of hurts from all of the awesomeness and great advice I soaked up, but it was so worth it. If you ever get to go to a conference, seriously go.And now, since I can't think, here are a few pictures I managed to snap. Well, I guess I didn't snap them, but people snapped them for me. Ha ha. :)

Waiting for an awesome agent/editor panel to start. 
My roomies: Katie Dodge, Donna Nolan, Ruth Josse, Me and Jeigh Meredith
And just in case you were wondering ... no. We didn't get any sleep either night. Ha ha. :)


Being photo-bombed by Abel Keogh. And look at cute Shelly Brown in the black and white. I love her!

A few of the same peeps from above. :)


Overall it was an amazing conference. I wish I had gotten pictures with Erin Summerill, Peggy Eddleman, and a few others, but there were so many things going on that I forgot to get my camera out most of the time. They were so much fun to meet though.

I'll post about some of the classes and things this week. :)

I wish I could have gone. I was all signed up and then my life got too crazy. Maybe next year :)

Small Town Shelly Brown said...

Next year Kate!

It was so fun to see you all again. I think you are the blogger that I see the most. And I'm happy with that :)

I love your little tummy and am so excited for your family.

I have an obscene amount of pictures I'm going to have to figure out how to get on my blog. Wish me luck :)

I was so close to coming this year but then our van broke down. Sounds like an amazing time and I would love to meet some blogger friends in person. Hopefully next year.

All this StoryMakers fun. Thanks for the photos as it lets the rest of us live a little bit through them, even for just those still moments :-)
