Don’t worry, friends! I’m still alive! Well…at least I will be once I drink this cup of coffee.
Anyways, last week, I was in Wheaton, Illinois for the Write-to-Publish Conference at Wheaton College. Talk about information overload! But it was really, really good. I did learn a lot, and I got to meet some really cool people—including key editors from the Christian publishing world.
[I started writing about it last week while I was there—that was my last blog post, Information Overload—but obviously I didn’t quite make it in the blogosphere for the rest of the week. Sorry about that.]
Not to mention the 17 books I brought home from the conference…don’t worry, I didn’t pay anywhere near full-price for all but two of them.
After the conference concluded on Saturday evening, I was able to spend some time with a really cool family. The Mungons let me crash at their house on Saturday and Sunday nights, giving me a bit of time to decompress as well as enjoy their company. They even saved me a bowl of ice cream…for which I was (and always am) incredibly grateful.
My next big event on the calendar is the GARBC Conference in Dearborn, Mich. at the end of the month. I’ll be reporting on the Students Alive! program and the National Talents For Christ competition throughout the week. I might need to hibernate until then.
So my conclusion, after the last two weeks?
God is good. I’m tired. God is good. Now go write. God is good.
