This last weekend marked my third consecutive Oregon Christian Writers one-day conference!
It was a great day, aside from getting up just after 5:00 in the morning to drive to Eugene, where it was being held. I car-pooled with Linda, an OCW friend, and we arrived early enough to not have to hunt for a parking spot.
The theme was bridge-building, and Bob Welch was an engaging keynote speaker. Good stuff!
I gave away a copy of my book in the drawing, and Linda and I were the poetry experts at the conference, so I sat at a table with a "Poetry" sign on it, and at lunchtime people could come talk to us about poetry. We had a great time.
After lunch we had workshops. I went to one about self-discipline as a writer (and time management, and organization) that was a lot of fun. I ended up spending a bunch of time in the bookstore talking with my friend Hillary and generally having a good time.
Worth the drive.
