That WAS the question. But after 4.5 days in Port Townsend at an awesome and totally inspiriung writer's conference, it's not a question anymore. I'm a writer and it's time to write.
The conference was great for several reasons:
1) It was in Port Townsend, which is a great place. There is a nice food co-op, several lovely places to eat, and nice window shopping. Plus, there are some AMAZING homes there.
2) The conference itself was filled with really talented writers. It's nice to be in the company of people who get what you do and are also inspiring.
3) The faculty (writeitreal.com) was exceptional. Lots of different angles on how and what to write. Really helpful.
4) I had lots of alone time to myself to write to my heart's content. I loved it. I needed it. I will do it again.
