Write2Ignite

This was a great first conference! I've been in North Carolina at the Write2Ignite conference in Indian Trails.

So many friendly people were willing to share their advice, tips, hints and even a meal or two:



Jonathan Firesen, Author of Jerk, California, Suzanne Hadley, Editor of Clubhouse Jr., Nancy Lohr, Acquisitions Editor of JourneyForth Books and so many more.



Here are some fun photos from the event.

These are the organizers of the First Ever Write2Ignite Conference: Samantha Bell, Jean Hall and Dr. Gail Hayes:











Sandra Epps is the founder of Sandy's Land a publishing house and children's entertainment services.

Hope you are having a good trip and getting a lot out of the conference, Kim! Good luck with the plane trip!

Hey Kim!

It was so wonderful meeting you! I'm so glad you had a nice time. Thanks for having dinner with me. Please keep in touch!

Kelly: I made it home and - believe me - the flight coming home was MUCH better than the first leg of my flight over there: everyone clapped when we landed 'cause we hit into a storm and actually had to turn around to go around it - after we'd been bounced around for about 10 minutes.

Amy: You too! Here's part of one of my favorite poems:

"New made friends are like new made wine, age will mellow and refine. Friendships that have stood the test - time and change is surely best. So, make new friends but keep the old, these are silver those are gold."

And you watch True Blood - I must finished the first book in the series!!!

KIM! I'm so glad you posted this. I enjoyed meeting you and hope we will see each other at next year's conference, too. God made it happen this year and we'll trust Him for the next one, too.

I had a BLAST! (btw - my hand doodles are almost gone. I'm kind of sad - it was a nice little conversation starter about the conference!) :)

hugs,
Donna
