It's funny (as in peculiar, not as in humorous), but now that I've landed an agent, I almost miss the sense of purpose that came from going to PPWC. I never expected to, but I do. Amazingly enough, considering it's attended primarily by unpublished writers, PPWC is a very nurturing environment.
And it's a fun event, too. All the best to Skye, Sophia, Ceil, Brad, Olgy, Laurie (I think I'm spelling her name wrong) and all the other writers I met there! And thanks to Carol Berg for telling me about PPWC!
