Not So Fleeting Thought

This has been the best weekend!

I attended a writers' mentoring retreat just outside of Kansas City, Missouri. It was a small affair, probably forty people or so.

It was not a conference packed with activities, so that you come away overwhelmed and unsure just were to start. It provided small group discussions, individual time with mentors, and most importantly, time to write and apply what you had just learned.

Special thanks go to Mark and Jeanette Littleton of the Heart of America Christian Writers' Network for all their work and a wonderful time.

A big, BIG thank you for my personal mentor, Nick Harrison, for his encouragement and advice and his servant heart.

Hugs and gratitude go to the other six members of my group, Bob and Steve, Carey, Tonya, Marilyn and Vivian, for their feedback, encouragement and prayers. While we write different genres, both fiction and non-fiction, we are all readers and the critique session provided much helpful feedback on already written portions of our work.

Most of all, I'd like to thank God for bringing us all together and knitting us as a family of writers.
What a blessing!
