There were many chats as well, but I felt the workshops were of more value. You may not have been able to get an answer immediately with the workshops, but at least you were able to ask your question. In the chats, there often wasn’t enough time for everyone to pose a question. After waiting for 50 minutes to ask something and then not getting a chance could’ve frustrated some writers. I didn’t have questions when I was in a chat, but I didn’t go to many of them. I was simply too busy. Besides, there are transcripts for all the chats that I’ll grab this week.
See any workshops that might’ve interested you? Maybe I’ll give you an overview. Please note, some workshops offered more material than other, so I may not have much to share on the subject.
