Off to Colorado

I’m off to the Colorado Christian Writers Conference this morning. (Yeah, so why am I blogging?) I’ve got a book by Adam Sexton for airport reading (Master Class in Fiction Writing: Techniques from Austen, Hemingway, and Other Greats) and comfortable shoes.

Cold lobby, warm connections

I’m sitting in the freezing-cold lobby of a hotel in Nashville at the annual conference of the American Christian Fiction Writers. There’s free wireless internet down here, which is why I’m not upstairs in bed. I can’t adequately describe the delight of being with so many like-minded people and meeting friends I’ve only known online before. As one of the…
