Yay for the wise tech people that solved my database error. I don’t even have a clue what a database error is so it’s great they were there to help. Now I’m back online, and just in time to leave for the 2010 ACFW conference in Indianapolis. As I write, I’m sitting on the Hut Shuttle in route to Portland International Airport. My dear friend and critique partner, Jodie Bailey, is driving her way up from Tennessee. I can’t wait to see her at the end of this very long day.
This is a special conference for me. Of course I think it’s special every year, but this year most of my critique group will be attending. Donna and Kimberly will arrive tomorrow. Janay, we’ll miss you. This year is also special for me because I accomplished a major goal. I finaled in the Genesis contest. This was one of those goals I didn’t really know if I’d ever meet, but last May I found out that I made the cut in Women’s Fiction and in Contemporary Fiction. I’m still shocked. The winners will be announced at the banquet Sunday night. And believe it or not, there is a lot of truth to the “It’s just an honor to be nominated” thing.
I’ll update you as I go. Hopefully with pictures.
