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
