From 2011

// February 11th, 2011 // Uncategorized

I won’t be posting a new blog next week. The Southern California Writers’ Conference is a week from tomorrow and I still have lots to do to be ready when Devan gets here to pick me up…including meet with Devan on Tuesday!

This year I’m anxious about the conference. No, REALLY. Anxious! Last year was a lark. This time I know that I have to talk to strangers and promote my work. If you know me, you know I’d much rather be behind the scenes. “Pay no attention to that woman behind the apron!”

This is all new to me! By nature I doubt what I have to offer. But I know that God gave me this job and if He says I can do it, I can do it! I don’t know yet to what end. Is the finished product going to be for my family and friends? That would be alright.

But I have a larger goal. I hope my book will eventually be in the hands of grieving parents. Caregivers. Friends of grieving parents. Anyone who could benefit from an inside look at this unique grief.

And to reach that goal I have to promote myself…in the social media stream and at the conference face to face with people who can make decisions about my future based on how I present myself.

Thanks for your prayers. And thanks for recommending my blog and website to everyone in your own social media stream. It really does make a difference!

Peace be with you…

    Best of luck Deb. This is meant to be. We will miss your presence.

    Thanks Gaylord! The conference wasn’t so scary after all :). But busy though! I learned so much and am looking forward to the road ahead!
