A year ago I volunteered to present a Muse Online Writer’s Conference workshop. My workshop is for helping writers create websites. I’ve never done anything like this before in my entire life, although I’m in my mid-fifties, and I was very apprehensive about the whole thing all year long.
As it turns out, I’m having a great time interacting with people in my section of the message board. I’ve prepared short conversation-starter postings to begin each day’s thread. Though some of the workshop presenters posted long, in-depth lessons, I’ve opted to keep mine very short (less than 500 words) because I know what an information-overload Muse Conference attendees can experience. I want to help and inspire without loading writers down with too much information all at once.
On Monday the topic was How to Make Your Site Look Professional, and today’s topic was Learning From Other Sites. Now, I’ve got to get back in there… I have a lot of author websites to critique!
In case you missed your chance to register this year, put this on your calendar for August of next year. That’s when the next registration should start. The conference, in October, lasts only a week.
My workshop ‘handout’ information is on the web: Creating An Impressive Writing Website.
