Girls Write Out
Friday, September 22, 2006
American Christian Fiction Writers 2006 Dallas Texas -- coming at you live! We're tired. Bone-weary tired, and it's not that we've done a lot. This morning we spent in a photo shoot with a photographer because "they" say you should update your author photos every two years. But all I can think of when I look at my old photo is what size those jeans are, and I'm not ever going to see that size again -- so I want to see me bigger and older, why? I have no problem with perpetuating the myth I'm younger and thinner. Really, what kind of woman would I be without this?

Anyway, we had a blast doing our photo shoot because it's not intimidating when you can laugh at your friends (like Colleen with a butcher knife, Denise with a romantic red rose and Diann with an industrial sized DeBrand's truffle box). So we survived and you'll all get to see our older mugs soon.

But back to my point (see, I just made you believe there was one!): Writers' Conferences are just overwhelming because there are so many people to meet and you have to condense it in a small amount of time. We have all critiqued manuscripts until we are blue in the fingers and our minds are numb! Tomorrow is the big banquet dinner with the Genesis Award Winners for up and coming writers and book of the year contests. We'll keep you posted! Kristin

OOOOH! What does Jenny know that we don't??? Tell us quickly or we'll die of suspense! Is it good? Is something to be proud of? Hurry! Hurry! Tell us!

P.S. Your post was hilarious. Loved the part about the photo shoot and the blue fingers.

I can't wait to see the pictures. I'm having a photo shoot myself, today. Only, I'm behind the camera. I'm taking some pictures of my boys for their room.

It was great to see you again. I know what you mean, though. I was numb after only 2-1/2 hours. I think CJ was a bit dazed. I told him, "Welcome to my world."

It was great to see all y'all again! Hate that it's a year away again!

Denise Hunter

Denise Hunter writes women's fiction and love stories with a strong emotional element. Her husband says he provides her with all her romantic material, but Denise insists a good imagination helps too.

Diann Hunt

Hannah Alexander

Cheryl Hodde writes romantic medical suspense under the pen name of Hannah Alexander, using all the input she can get from her husband, Mel, for the medical expertise. For fun she hikes and reads. Out of guilt, she rescues discarded cats. She and Mel are presently taking orders from four pampered strays.
