Write Here In Ephraim 2012 Success!

Write Here in Ephraim 2012, was a rousing success! (Picture by 12-year-old Michael Bahlmann.) Here I am, standing in the back (my usual spot since growing to nearly six feet tall in elementary school) reading a "First Page Shred" entry for participating authors to critique. (That ray of light above my head is a great idea striking me, a rare moment caught on camera, sort of like those light orbs that some ghost hunters manage to capture on film!) The authors in this picture are, from right to left: Andrea Pearson, Julie Wright, Michael Young, and Kathryn Jones. There were twenty two other participating authors, and I will post pictures of them on my website soon!
There were a few more attendees than last year, and we received overall positive feedback. The new location at Snow College was much more spacious and gracious and accommodating for those in attendance than last year's facility. Several people expressed interest in coming next year. If you missed it this time, and really want to come, we hope you'll be able to make it in 2013!
If writing conferences aren't your favorite, what is something you would really love to do? (I'm going to see the castles in Europe and visit a tropical island and become an international bestselling author!) Come on, spill it, what do you really want to do?

It was a really great conference. I can't believe how much I learned. Keep me in mind for maybe giving a class next year.
