Thank you, Willamette Writers Conference!

Love the Willamette Writers Conference. It’s where I pitched my first book, Writer Mama.

The conference committee was kind enough to invite me to be a lunch speaker, a presenter and a manuscript critique person.

Totally pooped but had a wonderful weekend!

More soon…in the meantime, here’s a few photos:

    Didn’t we have a blast! Such fun to see the pictures.

    As I sat in the airplane on the runway for an hour waiting for traffic controllers to clear us for takeoff, I paged through Writer Mama — boy do I wish I’d had your great advice back then.

    My one tip is: save your rejection letters. I use them in the keynotes I’m asked to give a writers’ conferences!

    Yes, we sure did have a blast.

    It’s fun to reconnect with everyone as we head back to our respective homes.

    We were having fun. Thanks Christina for posting photos from the conference. What a great three days of workshops, networking and socializing. And thanks for the toast to my forthcoming book deal.

    Thanks for getting us together and thanks for the photos. We’re quite a talented group, aren’t we?
