Writing For Charity 2014 Conference

Saturday March 22nd I was able to volunteer at the Annual WFC Conference again. I think it was the best one yet. And here's why...

Author, Maryrose Wood started off the day with a wonderful keynote address. She talked about ignoring what you think is URGENT (like the dishes, the laundry, facebook) and focusing on the IMPORTANT (your art, your writing, your children and family). I think I often et sidetracked by what I mark as urgent in my day and don't take care of enough important things.

Here are my visual notes from her speech.

 There were many other great points from the day. I also was able to teach a couple workshops and help critique some manuscripts. After a full day, some of us presenters went out to dinner together. It was a wonderful day. Don't miss it next year! Here's a link to the website...

  1. I loved the keynote address too. Your workshop with Robert Neubecker and Kristyn Crow's were my favorite. It was great to see you again!
