I'm Back! (Video)

I just got back from a family vacation to the Oregon coast. It was a lot of fun, and included such highlights as a tour of the Tillamook Cheese Factory and standing inside the Spruce Goose. (For those of you whom've seen The Aviator, it's that big, huge, airplane Howard Hughes surprised the reporters with by taking off unexpectedly) I'll post some pictures soon.

Anyhow, I think the saltwater may be addicting, because I've decided to, God willing, attend the Oregon Christian Writers Summer Coaching Conference on July 27th-30th. It should be a great opportunity to network, meet some agents and editors, get some great tips from pros, and, again God willing, further me on my quest to get The Shepherd in print. I'm definitely looking forward to it. Prayers much appreciated.

And now for the video promised in the title. This is a kind of spoof I made for video production class last semester. Enjoy...



Thanks for all the comments on the post below. I'm glad you all enjoyed it.

Thanks everyone!

Rachel Danielle: If it's the distance that prevents you from fulfilling your "daydream" you should look at this link, which has links to Christian writers conferences going on throughout the country:

I'm going to try to keep everyone posted with updates on this blog when the time comes. It'll definitely be a step out of my comfort zone, and I'm looking forward to it.

My sister was giving me a funny look when I all of a sudden busted out laughing. The music was the cherry on the sundae. Hilarious.

Cloe said...

Fun video!

And the conference sounds great!
I'm planning on going to the Florida Christian Writer's Conference next February. It's pretty far from my state, but one of my favorite authors is doing the Teen Track, and my parents are pretty supportive of the idea. :)

Oregon? That's cool! I live in Oregon (nice and green). My sister was going to go to the conference... but I think something got in the way.

Hope it doesn't rain too much on you!

In Him,
Courtney
