Writers' Conference

Wow, I think my head is about to explode.  I have taken in sooo much information over the past 2 days.  Not only am I new to the particular curriculum that I am writing but I am new to the publishing world and how lessons have to submitted, formatting, word counts, meeting editors expectations, and, well, the whole thing.  Although my dream has been to be published I must admit it's nice when Johnny and I write for our church peeps and we only have to worry about getting our material to Julie and Shannon by our deadline and they simply print it and we pass it out.  It certainly has way more pressure (like, none) than all this writing for LifeWay jazz.

The LifeWay team is great, though.  I mean, super great.  And I have run into an old friend, a friend of Johnny's and a classmate of our student pastor.  That's been fun.  And, it has been interesting to see how production of Sunday School curriculum goes from an outline to finished product.  It really is a colaborative effort.  At least this particular curriculum is. 

So, I'm here at the hotel just chillin'.  I'll be back at the conference early tomorrow morning then home tomorrow afternoon.  Then, I'll be busy writing!  What a thrill!

Serving the King,

Heard you also ran into Hailey at the Nashville airport on her way back to Union after Andy's graduation! Small world, huh?
Enjoy your time there and good luck!

Out of interest, who is the 'king' you refer to in the last line of every post?
I assumed it to be God, or Jesus?
