My Mission Statement

I write to serve, to unite, to educate. I write to share literature and flesh out ideas that may be of interest to others. I write to document an emotion, experience, or a blip in time. My mission is to write in such a way that the reader is reminded that we can find humor in all situations. It's one of the great blessings of life.

Just a Quickie/ SCBWI Carolinas Fall Conference

Only time for a quickie, but I wanted to tell you two things:
1. I started a 7 week marriage class today. Very interesting. More on that later.
2. I'm going to Durham tomorrow for the SCBWI Carolinas meeting. I have a crit with the brilliant Joyce Hostetter. I'm reading her book, BLUE, now, and I'm positively mesmerized. A more complete review will come soon. Anyway, she's reviewing my most recently completed novel (or part of it anyway), and I'm very excited to meet her. Also, I really need the motivation and inspiration that this conference always brings me. For my writer readers, I'll blog a bit of the conference as the week-end goes on. So please stay tuned. For my local readers, please keep an eye out for my dear husband this week-end who has major soccer and church duty while I'm gone. Poor guy will be dead Sunday night as it's a busy week-end.

Gotta run now and decide what to bring with me to this conference besides lots of sharpened pencils and my glasses. xoxo Have a great week-end.
