We all get writer’s block on occasion. Since I work at the keyboard daily, it’s not uncommon to find me stepping away for a bit to think of the next great headline or lede for an article.
Hey, I’m human.
But, my favorite way to get energized and inspired to write, write, write is by attending a writing convention or conference. I know you’re thinking, “Oh, that sounds fun! Too bad I can’t afford a hotel stay and airline ticket right now.”
Well, you don’t have to!
In this wonderful digital age, there’s many, many online conventions and conferences you can attend at no cost, while wearing slippers, tucked behind your laptop.
A few weeks ago I attended the Content Marketing Institute‘s online conference, Content TECH. It was a great way to network, socialize, learn new ideas and hobnob with others in the writing world.
Have you ever attended a writing conference or convention? Which one? Tell me about it in the comments below. I’m always looking for more great ways to fuel my passion for writing!
