northwest christian writers renewal
Whenever I'm asked, "How do I get started writing?" my first response is always, "Attend a writers' conference." There's no substitute. Nothing else motivates you quite like these gatherings of writers, editors, publishers, and agents. A weekend in that kind of setting sends you home fluffed, nudged, and ready to scribble.
As it happens, there's a great (and affordable) conference on the near horizon. May 2-3 (for those of you in the Pacific Northwest or willing to travel here) the Northwest Christian Writers Renewal will be held in Bothell, Washington.
Cec Murphy, writer or co-author of over 100 books, including 90 Minutes in Heaven, will be our keynote speaker. I'll be teaching two workshops myself, one on "The Four Roles of a Writer" (in which we'll talk about right brain/left brain battles and how to make them work to your advantage); the other is "How To Get Personal Without Revealing Too Much."
I hope to meet some of you there!
