Time for a major re-right

I left the conference a day early.

There are lots of stories as to why...but not for this page. Still, I don't want to be obscure since I promised an honest report.

My current assessment is conferences are not for me. Maybe all conferences, but especially Christian Writer's Conferences. This, is in spite of many wonderful contacts I made with people and even a very fun publisher who I like personally.

I've talked a bit before about the ACC, American Christian Culture, and this beast is alive and strong at the conferences. Not that we don't all have our hypocritical selves, but the ACC has an unspoken norm that I, unfortunately don't fit. Or maybe it's for the best.

I can honestly say I am sure that no one missed me the last day I wasn't there, which is a wonderful thing about not knowing anyone when you go somewhere--it's easy to leave unnoticed.

I will write a little more on the subject when I have regained my strength and balance. Especially would like to list some good writing tips I learned.

Till then!

Shelley

    From the sound of it, maybe I wouldn't fit in the ACC either! And I probably wouldn't even want to! I hope you are feeling better today.
