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"


  1. It was great seeing you at the conference! You go girl and keep your promise of writing a page. ;)

  2. You area writer chick!! That's a great goal because at the end of a year you will have a book. One page a day is doable and I know you can do it!!

  3. Thanks my friends! I know with your encouragement and support I will reach my goal! I know I can't make it without advice from both of you. So if I start bugging you for tips I hope that neither one of you will mind. :)

  4. Great goal. It IS so hard to balance both the reading and writing besides everything else in life.

    I'm so glad you had a fun time rooming with Melissa. She is super fun!

  5. yah, totally missed the AI party. i had to drive home that night, and it was already super late. Glad it was a blast though, even though i wasn't there. :)

    Thanks for dropping by my blog the other day! (700blankpages) i'll totally take you up on your reading offer as soon as i have something that won't burn your eyes out. lol Learned so much this year at conference!

  6. You do deserve it, Shiela! I'm so glad you found this new determination in yourself! Hold tight to it and never let go!

  7. Hi Shiela! I'm glad we met at the conference, too. (I didn't know standing near the garbage was a strategic people-meeting place!!) I love your contagious smile and engery. I'm totally jealous of the t-shirt you won! Good luck on your goal!
