A new Unicorn

On 4/10/10, I was one of the authors speaking at the inaugural Unicorn Writers' Conference in Connecticut. For a first-time event, attendance was impressive, so much so that the parking lot and lunch lines were bottlenecked.

The conference filmed all presenters, burned DVDs of each talk immediately afterward, and offered those DVDs for sale to attendees. (Authors, of course, negotiated in advance the terms of this with the conference.) My DVD also features the video of my cover of Chumbawumba's 1997 hit "Tubthumping":

I debuted a new presentation at Unicorn: "Nonfiction is Non-Boring." The topic, however, is not new for me. The presentation is based on the relatively new release Quick Nonfiction Writing Activities That Really Work.

That book, in turn, was based on another, more specialized presentation I've been doing for several years called "Draw a Story, Write a Cartoon."

It's all so meta.
