Exploring Social Media Panel: links

Hola writing comrades,

Hope all of you who choose to are NaNo-ing up a storm today. What better way to forget the storms of November than to write your way through them? Speaking personally, I've never actually NaNoWriMo'd, though November has always been an excellent writing month for me. [See -- storms, above.]

However, when you need to connect with all those other writers out there to share your pain, what to do? What to do, indeed! Those of you clever sorts who attended our Saturday panel on social media for writers know how -- social media, of course! So for those who attended our slammin' panel, and even for those who missed out, here are links to as many of the topics covered as I can remember. As always, if you have any specific questions, I'm happy to answer -- just ping me on the internets and my ears will all be yours!

Thanks, kc, for the links; I'm still checking them.

This was my first time attending SIWC, and I was very pleased with my experience! I wrote a post about my observations at the SIWC this year on my blog, DG Hudson - Rainforest Writing (link follows below).

I attended the conference for one day, and added a master class, a pitch and two crits, so these are what I discussed in my review. This year I had an appetizer, next time I'll try more.
