I Got My Skills at the Storymakers Conference

It's that time of year when I start thinking about making more time for writing. Most of the time I do my best with the time I have, but once Christmas is over, I make more time. For my books, that is.

You see, registration for the LDSStorymakers Writers' Conference has begun. This year I actually started thinking about it much sooner. As soon as I got the babysitting job back in September I planned on using the money to get me to the conference. I'm still working the kinks out, but I think it might happen. I have to drive my kids across the country, find a babysitter for that weekend, and see if I can afford the hotel reservation or just get up extra early and drive from my in-laws in West Valley or my friends around Provo.

I've been to the Conference for the last three years and I've loved it every time. I know a few of you who read this blog are writers and might be interested in going, so I'll give you a link to their site where you can read more about it. Each Conference I've been to has been great and each one is better than the last. I've learned a lot and I know my writing has improved from attending these Conferences. If any of you Cleveland girls want to go, let me know and you can come with. Maybe we can split a room at the hotel!

I have been thinking about doing this this year! I have a friend in my writing group who has been every year and was a speaker one year and she has encouraged me to go. I am needing a little inspiration desperately, so this might be the right time to start attending :)

Hey Kellie! I'm totally excited about going, too. We're still deciding between driving all the kids out there from KS, or seeing if we hoist the kids off on some friends and only taking our oldest son with us while we fly back and forth. Ugh. I just don't know what to do. Either way is expensive, and both have complications. Keep me posted on what you decide!
