Conference Time

Wondering where I've been?  I'm up to my ears with conference preparation.

The Maine Fellowship of Christian Writers conference is this Saturday, August 14th.  As the primary organizer of the event and desktop publisher I've been so busy, especially as we get closer to the date. I only have a few minor details to tend to and then I head to the coast of Maine on Friday for set up and spend the night which will be a special treat for me that I'll tell you about after the conference.

Cec Murphey is our keynote and I'm so looking forward to meeting him. We'll have 3 sessions with him: purpose, technique, and "Ask the Expert".  He will also provide advisory appointments as will our other workshop presenters.  There will be two breakout workshops, morning and afternoon. Historical Romance author Ruth Axtell Morren will be conducting workshops on Christian Romance and Getting Published in Genre Fiction. Inspirational author Yvonne Ortega will be providing workshops on Self-Editing and Non-Fiction Book Proposal. We also have a workshop on Writing for Children, and I will be teaching on New Media Connections.

We had our last pre-conference meeting this afternoon and now I'm off to another conference meeting for the Women's Fall Faith Lift at my church in October (featuring Lucinda Secrest McDowell).  Busy, busy! 

Was I supposed to be writing a novel??? I'll have to get back to that next week.


  1. Wish I could go with you, Carla! I know your heart and soul are in this one:) Praying you have a blessed time in every way. You are such a blessing I know that will happen!

  2. I hope you have a wonderful conference experience, Carla! And that God will bless the work of your hands!

  3. This is a busy time for you. My prayer is that your efforts will be blessed many times over as attendees respond to all the conference will offer them. I'll be attending a conference closer to home... the Surrey Int'l Conference in October. I go every couple years and even though it's not a Christian conference, I gain so much from being immersed in the weekend's environment.

    Thinking of you with your manuscript. I can't wait until I can read it.

  5. Sounds like lots of fun. Wish I could be there too. Hope you have a great time.
