Winchester Writers' Conference was exhausting, but in the informative, busy, fun way. The opening speakers were Julian Fellowes (who wrote this little British TV show called Downton Abbey) and his wife, editor Emma Kitchener-Fellowes. I only took one photo, mostly because the day was so packed with workshops and talks and meetings that I forgot to take more ) Fellowes is entertaining and inspiring and has so much energy. His enthusiasm set Saturday off on the perfect note.

The day consisted of discussions, workshops and one-to-one appointments. I went to five talks: Settings to Die For, Self-Editing Before Publication, Means to an End, Making a Drama Out of a Crisis, and Not Another Vampire Story )

The one-to-ones were probably my favourite part. I got great feedback and each one was extremely encouraging. I came away thrumming with writerly delight.

It's not the cheapest conference in the UK, but in my experience it's definitely worth going to if you can.

NASA’s Sci-Fi Vision: Robots Could Help Humanity Mine Asteroids - from Universe Today. More sci-fi future nerdery, but an exciting prospect. So if Armageddon really does happen like the movie, we won't have to send Bruce Willis up there to blow it up. That's a relief.
