Imagine getting to attend workshop after workshop led by industry professional from every corner of the writing world. . .authors, editors, publishers and agents!! All in one spot and over the course of one week. Each day will be packed with large and small sessions, all-conference meetings and one-on-one opportunities to learn from experts on every possible aspect of writing as a career!
I keep hearing whispers of 'first timers' attending with unrealistic expectations. . .as if they think they will just walk into the redwood groves of Mount Hermon and sign a multimillion dollar book contract.
I hope none of that seeps in to my experience. . .I hope I keep focused on the opportunity to learn that this conference is. That most of life, is, really. I hope the blessing I am receiving will not be tainted with dreams of grandeur or entitlement or anything else that would block in me an open mind and a teachable spirit.
So, off I go. . .excited and ready to absorb all God has in store.
I can't wait!
