If your life is anything like mine, you have a myriad of things to do each day and several hats to wear. Usually the choice of which one wins depends on what's most important or, more likely, most urgent.
Today I attended the American Christian Writers Conference in Spokane, WA. I enjoyed a selfish day of what some would describe as frivolous. I dealt with hyperbole, homonyms, and onomatopoeia. I discussed submissions, queries, and proposals. I contemplated words and sentence structure. The Pastor about passes out having to discuss or even think about these subjects, but for me it was a day of pure fun.
Every day I'm a mom. I'm a pastor's wife. I'm an Information Technology Manager, a daughter, and a sister. But today, while The Pastor was at a men's retreat and our son was with a friend, I got the rare opportunity to be something else I love... a writer.
