Networking

I finally went along to Weegie Wednesday last night, as I’ve been meaning to for ages. It’s a very loose event: there were two (very brief) speakers but no questions or discussions, so the evening was really about chatting to people in the bar. Which is good, especially if you aren’t shy and know someone there, but can definitely be hard for some people. It’s worth making the effort though: as well as talking to some people I already knew, I spoke to a couple of strangers and came away with two potential markets for stories, an invitation to read at an event and a promising idea for my novel (from someone who didn’t even know what it was about). Plus, it took my mind off toothache.
