A workshop a day
Today I'm going to recommend something I enjoy very much... RWA national conference workshop CDs. The 2005 conference is on 3 CDs in MP3 format. They contain tons of workshops, well over a hundred. Maybe 150. This is the 2nd year I've bought them from Bill Stephens Productions ( billspro.com ) and they are worth the money, which is only about 1/8 the cost of the same workshops on tape. The CDs have a printable table of contents, 10 pages. I printed this out and I look through it and decide which workshop I'm in the mood for that day. I use a portable CD/ MP3 player with a headset. I walk for about an hour, outside in the fresh mountain air, or take my mind off cleaning, washing dishes or folding laundry by learning some aspect of writing (and being virtually transported to a workshop in Reno.) Though I'm not a beginner, it never hurts to review many aspects of craft. I feel the more I listen, the more I will absorb it. I have a thirsty mind. I am usually pleasantly surprised at how good the workshop is and I often learn new information or ways of looking at writing or the publishing industry.

    Apparently, I'm a little techno-challenged. I assumed I'd be able to play the CD's in my car. Uh, no. Grrrrr. So, now I have to buy a portable CD player...and it's too dark to take long walks so I don't know when I'll listen to them anyway. But I'm looking forward to it!

    Oh, that's too bad, Randy. My car won't play them either. Nothing but my computer and my small portable CD player. Some people can play them in their DVD players. You might try that. I really love the workshops. I'm learning lots.
