My First Writing Conference!

Let's just say life's been crazy lately.

Along with trying to keep up in college, I've been preparing for my very first writers' conference. This past weekend I went to the American Christian Fiction Writers annual conference. I had the privilege of sitting through workshops, hearing Robin Jones Gunn speak (she's excellent!), and getting to pitch my book to agents.

Yes. Pitch my book to agents. I'm still getting over the fact that I actually did it! Exciting and a bit nerve wracking.

All in all, the weekend went amazingly well. I'm so thankful to God that I went. I don't entirely know where He's leading me on my writing journeys right now. It will be some time before I know if this conference produced any real leads for me towards getting published.

It's true, I don't know the end.

But when I think about it, taking this journey with God ... that's enough.

    I wish I'd seen you at conference. It was a crazy and good time.

    I hope you get good responses from your pitches!

    Take care.
