Since my last two posts were about the SCBWI conference I figured I would conclude the conference posts with this Appreciation Monday post.
I am not one to chit-chat and put myself out there to meet people. I am an introvert and love who I am. But I know it is important to connect without others, especially as a writer, as we need a lot of support from others in our challenging field.
I don’t go around shaking hands with everyone and other ways of mass connection. I like to connect with one or two people, max. (I sat next to an agent during the entire conference and didn’t even say HI!) I’ve been lucky enough to meet and grow friendships this way in the past with several wonderful creative women.
This year, at the SCBWI conference I connected with a lovely lady named Lynn. Since the conference we have remained in contact through social media. This is what matters to me over twenty hand shakes and nothing remembered.
I am appreciative for networking and ultimately making connections and future friendships with other writers and artists.
