Write On!!!...con

Today is the final day of WriteOnCon, but before you get all "No fair! I didn't know!" if you missed anything it's all up on the site. You can go back and read/watch anything you missed. =)

Here are some of my favorites so far:
Live Chat with Suzie Townsend (because she's my truly fabulous agent and she mentions Personal Demons :p)
Five Questions to Ask Yourself Before You Start Revising by Kendra Levin
Becoming a Career Author by Catherine Drayton
Romance in YA by Lisa Schroeder
Writing Authentic/Edgy Teen Literature by the FABULOUS Kody Keplinger (they didn't have the fabulous thing in there, but...)
Panel of Professionals chat LIVE (Anica Rissi, Joanna Volpe, Suzie Townsend, Mary Kole) Topic was voice.
