ACFW Indy Sat Report

Saturday at the ACFW conference in Indianapolis started off great although I was suffering from lack of sleep. Just tossed and turned all night.

Shared breakfast with other Beyond the Borders zone members: Gail Sattler (BC), Val Comer (BC), and Cathy West (Bermuda).

Right after the morning worship, I went to await my editor's appt. Can I tell you the waiting area is nicknamed 'Pergatory'? I was in the first group and saw the same editor as last year. I told her about my big rewrite and what I changed and she actually remembered my story! Better yet, she liked the changes I made. And yes, she still wants it when it's complete.

Wth that out of the way, I started my day of workshops. Then lunch with some of the Seekers (Seekerville). And back to the workshops.

Since this night is set aside for authors to have dinner with their agents, Val Comer, Dina Sleiman, Lisa Richardson and a friend (sorry can't remember her name)went out to eat.

By the time we finished supper and went back to the Hyatt Regency, everyone was in a good mood and kind of giddy after the lack of sleep and tension.

  1. You're such a great photographer, Anita! Of course the lovely ladies give you plenty of good material don't they? ;) I esp. love Lisa's sassy pose...heehee!

    God bless you and please post more pics when you get a chance. God bless!

  2. Will you send me a copy of that photo with us together?

    I'm a little nervous about relying on a photographer who will remained unnamed...

    One of my ACFW joys was spending time with you, Anita.

    I love you.
    P.S. Until 11/15, I may have to SEVERELY curtail blog visits.
    Will you pray for me even if I don't stop by?

  3. Thank you, Gwen. I missed you so much this past weekend. :( Hopefully next year in St. Louis?

    I'll post more pics tonight.

  4. Yup Karyn, purgatory. Usually, it's a wide open lobby-like area, but this time it was a raised platform with a partial wall. Very apt name, I tell you. :)

  5. Hey Patti, it was a blast spending time with you, too.

    I'll send you a pic tonight or tomorrow when I'm going through them. I do my photos and posts in the evening when the family is around and I can't write. Now that I'm home, I want to get back to my wip, which I'll do as soon as I clear up a bit of mail, etc.

    Where's my list...
    Pray for Patti - check. :D


  6. This article was extremely interesting.


Come on, tell me what you think...
