Part two of my Realm Makers trip!
So I left off with random Converse. Here are some random people during a break.
Met up with my critique group for dinner. We take great pictures.
Don’t let this picture fool you. They are waaaaay dorkier in real life:
I had the chance to meet with a handful of editors and get to send in some manuscripts for consideration. No, I won’t say who or how many, thankyouverymuch. Took a couple of classes and left partway through the closing session with the keynote speaker, Ted Dekker. Now, since the conference has ended, there are a metric ton of things flying around about people’s thoughts on his sessions. I, for one, thought they’d be more centered around writing. But hey, not everyone will fit into a box. And if there’s one thing everyone attending Realm Makers can agree on, it’s that Ted Dekker fits in no box.
I stayed up waaaaaaay too late and ended up posting this lovely video.
My only regret is missing the Nerf war! I had my guns and ammo, but had to skip out on the fun.
The drive back was mostly uneventful. I was stuck behind a flatbed truck at one point, and flakes of red bark kept hitting my window. WAIT! Those are butterflies! Yes, my readers, I was on a fairytale road filled with thousands of red butterflies.
And then they started smacking my windshield and it wasn’t so magical. Snow White and Cinderella didn’t have to deal with suicidal butterflies.
When I got home, I was so tired that I fell asleep face down on the living room floor (there’s no photographic evidence).
Since returning, I’ve been writing, and Phish lends me her expertise:
