One More Thing – Blog World Expo

Six books, a T-shirt, a beach ball and a little rubber brain.

This what I will physically take home from Blog World Expo.

There is no photograph that can depict all that I will take away from here in terms of creativity, energy, motivation and a renewed love of writing.

Things were getting mighty dry at the well, I must admit.

One session by The Napkin Dad and I know not to let “STOP” signs get in the way of creativity. And I’m the one putting up those “STOP” signs…go figure!

A whirlwind session by novelist and writing professor Bill Torgerson and new writing territories, my territories, are revealed and the words pour out faster than I can take them down.

It’s like I can breathe at the keyboard again.

I can’t even begin to describe the freedom behind that sentence.

Or the weight that is off my shoulders.

Blog World rocks.

Thank, guys!

    I’m with you on those sentiments. And I didn’t attend any of the seminars since I only had an Expo floor pass. But that was plenty! I was kept busy for both days and walked away with a ton of great info and some good contacts for the future. Of course the goodies I took away were pretty nice too. It was my first BlogWorld Expo and hopefully not my last.

    Wow, Kim. What a great post, thank you so much! On a personal note, I’ve experienced a “dry well” often in writing, and it’s just awesome to see that BWELA has helped fill that well up for you again. Love it!
