First time for Everything

I promised I would take you on the journey - my path to reaching my writing goals. So, here it is.

My first time going to the LDStorymakers writers conference. If you've never been to this, you're really missing out. Whether you're LDS or not, this conference is for you. The focus was on making it in the writing world. The real writing world. Nothing sugar-coated. Pure advice, gritty details of life in the trenches. Real help and encouragement for anyone serious about writing.

In fact, of all the conferences I've attended, this one probably socked me in the stomach with sheer immediacy and reality and made me take a hard look at what my goals really are more than any other.

I didn't believe that anything could make me feel the way this conference did.

And hopefully this year will bring a lot more firsts.

It couldn't happen to a better person. Truly.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the conference and so sad that I didn't get more time with you. I need to come up and visit you. What do you say?

Anytime you feel like going to Boise, let me know. That would be awesome!
