|Writer Off the Leash reader Tama Fortner, a brave, brave soul.|
See this cute chick in the red sweater? I had the privilege of meeting one of my Writer Off the Leash readers and just had to share her with you other readers. Introducing the awesome Tama Fortner. Woo-hoo for readers!
Speaking of readers, I had a lovely bathroom experience with one who fangirled me right there in front of God and country and other restroom occupants. Super fun!
I got to fangirl on some of my favorite authors. Sarah E. Ladd and Jaime Jo Wright just to name a few.
Meeting with editors and agents and other writers is always a highlight, but the thing that really makes this conference special is the worship and the focus on God in writing.
But let's flip this coin over because yes, my friends, there was a down side to all this conference frolicking . . .
Here's a handy dandy travel tip for you. When you go through airport security and you're wearing a jean jacket vest, take it off. Better that than getting to know your TSA agent in a very intimate way. Or rather them getting to know you.
Next year's conference is in Dallas. For all you wannabe writers out there, even though this is an expensive trip, it's worth it to further your career.
