Well, I just had to share my news, cause I’m tickled down to my toenails.
Last night, my roommate and I ordered our plane tickets – the LAST thing we needed to secure our plans for the ACFW conference in Indianapolis. Yes, that’s right. My VERY first American Christian Fiction Writers Conference. I can’t tell you how excited I am.
I registered for the conference in June.
Secured the hotel the first week of July.
And now…plane tickets are a GO.
It’s a very real opportunity. Yipee kiyay!!
Why am I so excited? Well, here are a few reasons.
I’ll get to meet the SEEKERS!!!!! (waving to Julie, Mary, Tina, Ruthy, Janet, Myra, Camy, Cheryl…and all the other wonderful ladies at Seekerville)
I’ll get to dress up (Woohoo, banquet on Sunday night)
I’ll get to celebrate with the winners of the Carol Award (btw, 4 of my FAVORITE authors have finaled for this award in the Historical genre- you know who you are)
I’ll glean from all the great lectures and encouragement of being with other writers.
I might even get time to…write. I know, that might be pushing the possiblities a bit too far 😉
AND (drumroll please)
I’ll get to SLEEP!!! can you believe it? Three full nights without little people interruptions. I LOOOOOVE my kids, but oh my, what a treat to get an entire bed for an entire night. This may sound like a small celebration to some of you, but for those with kids (especially more than two with ages VERY close together) you know what I’m talkin’ about here 🙂
What a wonderful blessing and honor. I can’t wait.
And Mary, Julie, Janet, Myra, Deeanne, Laura, Cathy, Helen, Melanie…and so many other wonderful authors…
I reserve the write…er….right to get a hug and give a hug to each of you. So don’t be too afraid with this southern chic, with freckles and a somewhat insane look in her eyes, comes up to you. It’s probably me.
Are you going to ACFW? What are some of your favorite things about writers conferences?
