I just got back from the La Jolla Writer’s Conference–one of the best kept secrets in San Diego. This is my 4th year straight of attending the conference, and I had a wonderful time, as usual. My motivation to write is high, and I’m getting into the writing mode again.
I stayed at the Paradise Point Resort & Spa this time, which was really convenient. What bothered me about the resort is everything that is not included. Parking is not included. Internet is not included. Even the fitness room–at a “resort and spa” for Christ’s sake–is not included. Last year, they didn’t even provide coffee makers. I guess everyone wants to make an extra dollar.
This year, the standout faculty member (for me) was Steven Boyett. I first met Steven at LJWC last year and again when he spoke at the Southern California Writers Association. The gentleman is incredibly talented and has the same energy as a class-five tornado. Just watching him pumps up your energy two-fold.
