I just got home from the Northwest Christian Writer’s Association Renewal conference and I’m still riding that wave of positive feelings. I went into the weekend hoping for some good contacts and maybe a little bit of advice on how to improve my writing. Instead, I was blown away by the passion and knowledge of the speakers, the care and interest of the editors and agents, and the interest and encouragement of the other writers.
Of course, I know that those mountaintop experiences never last. Tomorrow I have to dive back into the world of laundry, dishes, and vacuuming, so I decided to give one last push tonight. One of the key points I heard this weekend was that every writer needs a blog– even unpublished ones, so here I am to share my journey as a writer.
I received an invitation to send in a proposal for my novel when I complete it. Previous to the conference, I had very loose plans for working on my revisions, but now, with this request, I have the motivation I need to move. I hope you will join me as I push through the revisions and into my proposal.
