Fueling the Fire: FenCon XIV

I attended the Writer’s Workshop at FenCon XIV in Dallas this year. The facilitator was the ever-insightful Cat Rambo. I was in with 14 other writers, critiquing and soaking up insights from Cat for 4 days.


Not only did I learn a ton about writing and about how others approach the craft, but the workshop refueled the tiny writer’s flame in my heart–which had been sputtering of late.

I immediately took home the various suggestions made about the story I had submitted for critique and really worked at tightening it up and making it better. I’ve re-titled it and have sent it out to a market for possible publication.

I can’t emphasize enough how great this workshop was. It was a great bunch of folks with a great teacher. It can’t get any better than that.

About Shedrick

I am a professional librarian and a part-time writer that's working to do that the other way around. I currently live in North Texas in the lovely city of Denton (“The Home of Happiness“) with my lovely wife and the obligatory demon-spawn cats. When not writing, gaming, or watching cheezy kung-fu flicks, I can sometimes be found in a pub (or the American equivalent) enjoying a fine brew.
