East Texas Christian Writer Conference Take-Aways #ETCWC

6a00d83459826969e2017d3d00d9d8970c-800wi#‎ETCWC‬ Take away #1 – The conference provides you with the kind of classroom session experience you can’t get anywhere else (even if you go back to school). It provides it from an evangelical Christian world-view.

‪#‎ETCWC‬ Take away #2 – You get to network with like-minded people and even get one-on-one time with instructors, speakers, agents and other authors.

‪#‎ETCWC‬ Take away #3 – People who attend the East Texas Christian Writer’s Conference leave motivated. They are “fired-up” about writing. They are enthusiastic about what they’re doing. They leave with the inspiration and the drive to go home, sit down and write as if it’s the only thing that matters in the world. Going to the #etcwc will help you start, re-start, or finally finish that project you have been imagining of getting into print.

#ETCWC Take away #4 – You meet other writers. You meet people who have signed with agents. You meet people with books in print. You realize they are just like you. You realize you too can do it. You can write a book.

#ETCWC Take away #5 – Networking is undoubtedly the most important aspect of a conference. Take time to meet new people. Remember, to have a friend you must be a friend. “A man that hath friends must shew himself friendly …” – Proverbs 18:24a KJV

#ETCWC Take away #6 – It is a great monetary investment in yourself. The conference cost for me including registration, preconference sessions, lodging (I stayed at the Motel 6), meals and gasoline was under $200. That means I only have to save $4.00 a week or 55 cents a day to have the money to attend next year. I can do that I skipping on trip to Starbucks a week! I am worth it.
