Whew. What more can I say? We arrived home from the Christian Writer’s Guild conference in Colorado Springs. The Write for the Soul Conference was held at the beautiful Broadmoor Hotel. This place was absolutely indescribable.
I am excited to take what I learned at the conference and improve my writing. It was such a blessing to hear Dr. Gary Chapman, Dr. Don Hensley, Sammy Tippitt, Karen Kingsbury, McNair Wilson and Pastor Bill Oudemolen. Each speaker added a wealth of information and inspiration over the weekend. We were delighted by Randy Atchison as he entertained us playing every key on his Steinway throughout the weekend. This morning’s worship was a fun with the Colorado Cowboys.
It was a highlight of the weekend to have a chat with one of my favorite fiction authors – Karen Kingsbury. We met her husband Don. She encouraged me to keep writing because the world needs to be blessed by Gabe’s story. Now how is that for inspiration to get it finished!
The continuing education classes and workshops were so informative. I’ll be anxiously awaiting the arrival of my MP3 copy of the conference sessions.
My appointments with book and magazine editors were very successful. I’ve been asked to submit my book proposal to two editors. Several magazines are interested in my articles. Yee Ha!
So I’ll be busy fine tuning my proposal and writing query letters to better explain the article titles I presented.
The main thing about this conference was that God get’s all the glory. We all write for the glory of God and to bring the message to a hurting world. Isn’t that the way it is supposed to be? Amen!
I probably won’t be able to sleep tonight with all the thoughts rolling around my head of things I need to edit or write….but I know I am called to write to the broken hearts and place their hand in God’s hand.
