Next week is Storymakers! I know, I know, this is my second post about it in a week. I’m excited. Can you tell?
I’ve been preparing for the conference by painting my car windows and ironing my socks and such. Just kidding. I'm a procrastinator. I still haven’t printed my pages for bootcamp. I have, however, been thinking about all the good times in store. I love going to writers conferences and can't wait to interact with everyone.
In honor of the event, I thought I’d throw a little bit of fun your direction. It's strange and goofy and off the wall, but it's me. Here are ten things not to do at Storymakers:
- Wear a cape and a mask and dart from corner to corner.
- Put windshield repair flyers on all the cars in the parking lot.
- Introduce yourself using an opera voice.
- Wear a pair of puppy hand puppets and have conversations back and forth.
- Yell “Amen! I believe.” after every speaker.
- Randomly pick a person and loudly announce to the conference that it’s their birthday.
- Whistle the Andy Griffith theme song nonstop between classes.
- Spray Lysol everywhere without an explanation.
- Constantly laugh like that little guy in Jabba’s palace.
- Raise your hand to answer a question, then share a story from your mission.
I promise: I will not do any of these at Storymakers! See you there.
