Not a good start huh?

OK so I was suppose to be writing a little bit more than what I'm doing. I honestly forgot that I set up this page. My good buddy, Writer, Shanita Waters (, reminded me that I had a blogspot today over lunch. So here I am.

I also had the pleasure of meeting 2 wonderful authors during Memorial Day wknd. Victoria Christopher Murray (Godmother of Christian Fiction - ) and Karen Quinoness Miller - . They gave me some wonderful writing tips as well as encouragement. We took pics for my goal poster. And to think, I never planned on attending the African American festival in Virginia because of all the riots that occurred. I almost missed out. But thanks to my little sis, Nea, it was the best time ever!!

So since I've last blogged, I attended my first Online Writers Conference. It was great! They had a line up of the best in Christian fiction as well as in the writing market. What I liked most about it was that I could do it from home!!! I went from the computer to the phone and back with every other instructor. I was able to run out when I needed to and then come back to work. That I would do again. It was reasonable as well.

I also recently joined a Christian writers group. I went to my first meeting a few weeks ago. I enjoyed it. I was nervous at first about having people read my works and critiquing it. But I actually enjoyed it. Karen Q-Miller suggested that I do that to help strengthen my writing skills. I believe it'll work. I found this group on . It was actually legit. NO stalkers!

Today I pulled a copy of what I have worked on on my book entitled "The Sanctuary". It's like starting all over again after hearing so much from the authors. I've learned that I just can't sit and write like I think. This is work.

But if God has brought me to it, I know He'll bring me through it!!!

Thanks for reading! B' blessed
