Honing Professional Skills

From time to time we each need to look objectively at our professional skillsets. Are they gathering dust - is the world moving faster than we are?

I recently attended the La Jolla Writers' Conference - a weekend packed with workshops and seminars on all aspects of writing, ranging from how to develop characters, how to set pace, to commercializing a book. The weekend provided multiple opportunities for feedback, all of it delivered in a constructive and caring way. I came away full of ideas, revitalized and with my professional skills ratcheted up a level.

Take a look at the courses available to you and take the plunge - you never know what you'll discover!
