Florida Christian Writers Conference

(L-R) Connie Pryce, Moi, Taryn Souders
The Florida Christian Writers Conference is one of many blessings I experience every year (when the Lord allows).  I meet new friends, like roommate Connie Pryce of Daytona Beach, and catch up with long-time-no-see friends, like Taryn Souders. Here we're enjoying our breakfast in the Word Weavers Members dining room.

Yvonne Lehman presents 2nd Place Award for Romance Novel
The Awards Banquet on Saturday, March 1, brought a smile to my face when my yet-to-be-completed novel, "Unforgettable" won 2nd Place in the Romance Genre. What a special treat to be presented the award by author and conference organizer (Blue Ridge Christian Writers Conference)Yvonne Lehmann. With more than 3 million books in print, she is the authority on writing Romance novels.
Devotional Writing Class with Susan King of Upper Room

Since Barbour Publishing so graciously extended my deadline for the devotional, "Discovering God in Everyday Moments," I took Susan King's (Upper Room) class on ... writing devotionals. Susan is a great teacher (college professor of English and Literature), and has a wonderful sense of humor. She reinforced some of the knowledge I already had about writing devotionals, but also taught me a few new tricks of the trade I needed. I'm already doing some quick edits of my finished devotionals.

My lack of posts to my blog are due to my intensive writing project, which I hope to finish soon.

What a blessing to write for the Lord!
