ACFW Conference

After months of planning, late nights, and revising, it’s finally the week of the ACFW Conference. Around 6 A.M. on Wednesday morning I’ll pile all my things into my trusty Toyota and drive down to St. Louis. I’ve packed and repacked my luggage 15 times. My messenger bag is bursting with one-sheets and sample chapters. And my stomach’s already butterflying at the prospect of meeting agents, editors, and many of my favorite authors.

All and all, I’m pretty sure this week will be the highlight of my year.

From Wednesday to Saturday I’ll be going from 7 A.M. to 11 P.M. or later each night. It’ll be tiring, and a social stretch for an introvert like me, but it’ll be good.

If you’re the praying sort, please remember me in your prayers this week. Pray for my nerves, pray that I’ll be able to make new friends, and pray for open doors and confident speech when I’m talking to editors and agents.
