FIRST DAY OF CONFERENCE
The morning General Session introduced those doing mentoring and continuing classes. Jeff Gerke is leading a Continuing Class for Christian Speculative Fiction which includes the Teen Track that was previously led by Bryan Davis. (We do miss Bryan.) Mark Mynheir and Davis Bunn are teaching a Continuous Class on Writing Fiction and Eva Marie Everson and Ken Kuhlken are leading the Fiction Mentoring sessions. I am enrolled in the Non Fiction Mentoring with Janis Whipple and Larry Leech is teaching the Continuous Class on Writing the Non Fiction Book.
Dr. Calvin Miller is the speaker for the General Sessions. Tonight he discussed Journaling, and he and his wife, Barbara, performed some oral readings from Dr. Miller's journals. Dr. Miller asked the audience, "If there were no editors or people to please with your writing, would you still write?" He says," When we write for God" is when our writing is our best effort with words." How about you? Would you write?
Will try to catch up again tomorrow.
A GOOD DAY AT THE CONFERENCE.
WISH YOU WERE HERE.
