Today we have X and I'm cheating and using the word Extraordinary (without the E)
Also, today is my Monday about Me Post
This last weekend I went to LDStorymakers and I loved it! It was such an extraordinary writing conference!
I had so many extraordinary teachers and topics and I left with my brain feeling extremely overloaded with great information that is going to make me an exemplary writer (if I can only manage to implement all the things I learn - and I do mean ALL of them)
But when I come come with my brain exploding with this information, that is when I do my best writing! That's my secret of the day. Although I want to sleep for about 2 days I also have a strong desire to write and to write well! Maybe I need more of this type of feeling and maybe I'm be more inclined to write more than I do!
Anyway, I'm sure you all want to see the extraordinary weekend I had, and all the extraordinary people I met. so here it is ...
