Now, I must start by saying that I did enjoy my time at the writing festival. Unfortunately, I was disappointed by the class that I attended for two days. It was less than what I expected from this well-known writing event. When I weigh the value of my time spent with what else I could have accomplished, the second option would have been a better choice.
I have learned in the last few years the value of my time. When I take a weekend away from my family, I want to be doing something I feel passionate about and get truckloads out of the experience.
I did my best to make the most of the weekend. I worked on my piece that I took for class, started another story, documented some story ideas for a project I would like to work on long-term and met some great people in the class I took. I gave feedback to the event coordinators and learned my lesson about really doing my research. I certainly know now, more than ever, the value of my time may not be the same as others.

Happy writing to all!
