Wow, has it really been so long since I last had a blog entry? It is definitely not from lack of words to share, but more from lack of time these last few weeks. The words are swimming around…just waiting for me to get a chance to throw them out to bloggersphere.
As promised, a few words about the CCWC that I attended…let’s see…can it really be that this conference was a month ago?? To begin with I will share the conference was a life changing experience for me…and oh, how I dream of going back to the mountains.
On the first day as I was standing in line at the registration desk I questioned my sanity just a bit as I realized I was going to be spending a few nights in a dorm room with two other women I didn’t know. What was I thinking? Well, God had a great big surprise and blessing for me. Long talks into the night and early morning breakfasts created a “sister bond.” Meeting them both was definitely a highlight of the conference.
When I signed up to go to the conference, I had hoped it would help me to not only learn more on the craft of writing, publishing, etc., but also, I wanted to meet God. I wanted to hear from Him. I wanted guidance and direction and….I wanted healing!
Besides time obstacles, part of the reason in my delay on blogging about my experience, is knowing what to share and what not to share. I want to honor God by sharing the things He taught me, but some of the healing I experienced was from years of bondage and to be honest, I am still processing that portion of my experience. There will be a time to share, but not right now. I will share with you though, I did meet God on the mountain…and I experienced remarkable healing.
Regarding the writing portion of the conference:
Many, many choices of topics and areas to explore in the writing world
Wonderful and caring instructors and staff
Appointments with agents, publishers, authors—beyond my expectation with their guidance, direction, encouragement and knowledge
This was a great writing conference…to not only learn the trade, but also for spiritual refreshment and encouragement.
Now, off to read what's been going on with my other blogger friends--I've missed you!!
