I am a Writer Chick
I had a total blast at the LDS Storymakers Writer's Conference this past weekend. I had a great time visiting with all of my friends I met last year. I loved making many new friends this year. I don't think I have hugged that many people in a long time. In my opinion, this conference is better than Disneyland. I am sure that my children would think so otherwise.
I really loved the Friday night party that Authors Incognito hosted. This is a group that I belong to. It is an online group of writer friends that help each other, give writing and publishing advice and have huge shoulders to cry on when things don't go well. At the party there were drawings for prizes. I actually won something!! I won a t-shirt that I really love. It was great to hang out with many people I have only "talked" to on-line. There was great food and fun.
The most valuable thing I gained at this conference was a new resolve to make time to write. I promised my friend, author Melissa Cunningham,(She was my roomie at the conference and we had a great time together!!) that I would write at least one page before I read my books.
So that is what I intend to do, so I can truly have something to work on with all of the information I learned this weekend. I truly want to deserve the title of "Writer Chick"
