What I've Been Up To

A week without blog posts due to the recent giveaway means I have some catching up to do...

Publishing Update: As stated earlier, I've signed up for the Oregon Christian Writers' Conference. My "mini-proposals" have been shipped off, and now a month-long wait for the conference. I hope to take a video camera and document the week. It should be fun. In the meantime I need to practice introducing myself and sliding manuscripts under bathroom stalls.

I also won a short story contest of sorts. Christian fantasy author, Christopher Hopper, hosted a contest on his blog. My entry was very sloppy, but I think this contest was based more on content than craft. For some good laughs, you can check out my story and others HERE.

Last thing: I've posted links to my facebook, twitter, and myspace accounts on the sidebar. If you're on any or all of those, I'd love to connect through them.

Haha- yes, slipping manuscripts under bathroom stalls is a good way to go at it. :D The contest was great- thanks for hosting it! And congrats on witting the story contest! I'll read your entry soon. I was thinking- it would be so cool of you could document the conference and share it with us on blogger!

Hey thanks, Eruanna. I'll fill it out and post it when I'm short on things to say.

I Can't wait to see this video. Plus keep me posted on any potential manuscript takers. I am going to be at ICRS in Denver in two weeks on behalf of Focus. Should be fun.
