Greetings from Denver! I have a terrible hankering to flee my hotel and start heading toward the mountains. The leaves are just beginning to turn as nature begins its fall symphony:) Today is my 15th wedding anniversary - away from my husband who is such a good sport about all of this. I did call home last night and talk to the boys a few minutes. They're doing quite well without mom and have likely already eaten all the groceries I bought. I'll be back Sunday.
So...I had such fun last night after falling in with a group of Texans, all writers, and then having dinner with a female doctor who writes medical fiction and also Candace Calvert, nurse and author who has a new book out entitled, Critical Care. If you like those ER dramas on tv this one is for you! I thought of all the nurses in my family and wondered how I ended up a writer. It's really fun to talk books with other authors. That's ALL we talk about which is just fine by me after going solo for so long but must get a little tedious to nonwriters.
The conference actually begins this afternoon at 4 pm for me and then it will be nonstop activity till Sunday noon. I love ACFW's focus on the spiritual aspect of writing. Plus you really never meet a stranger here! I've had wonderful conversations in the bathroom, elevator, Starbucks, and every nook and cranny of the hotel. Of course it doesn't hurt that we have name tags the size of road signs:)
Hope today holds some unexpected blessings and good books for you!
