For those of you who are signed up, today is the first day of the Muse Online Writers Conference. If you're not signed up, never fear -- there is already one planned for next year.
I had originally thought I would clear my work schedule at least a little for this week-long event, but as it turned out I neglected to do so. In some cases, it was because I didn't want to ask the clients, but for the most part it was because I do, sadly, still need this week's income from my regular jobs. On the bright side, I didn't accept any additional work, but I do expect to be quite busy this week.
The first day of the conference is almost halfway over. This is everything I have done so far:
* Registered for the forums and chat lounge
* Read through a few of the presenters' handouts
* Visited a few of my week-long workshops on the forum
* Attended my first real-time chat
Today and tomorrow are my "light" days this week: I only have one real-time chat scheduled each day. Today, however, I will need to finish reading the handouts and start participating in the week-long workshops. My goal is to finish my work for the day in the next couple of hours, so that I can spend some time on the conference forum.
If you are participating in the online conference, how is (or was) your first day?

Well, you already know that I wasn't thrilled with my first chat session. The week-long forums, however, look much more participant-friendly and -focused. I'll give you a better review as I get further into the week.
Katharine, mine BOMBED!
Check it out.
Yeah, I think we both feel the same about that chat. From what I've seen of the week-long workshops so far, though, I have high hopes for the rest of the conference.
I'm sorry to hear you had a rough first day, too. I'm going to post in detail about my first day a little later, so stay tuned!
