Colorado Writer’s Conference

I learned so much from the conference. In fact, by the end of the first full day, my head hurt! 🙂  I’d never been in a group of people where literally every single person loved to write and either had written a book or was working on one. I really appreciated the Christian emphasis in the conference too–keeping our eyes fixed on Jesus! For those interested in learning more about the conference, here’s the link.

I’m extremely excited about the character + plot the Lord has given me for my next book. After attending the conference and learning new things, I’m revising ideas before I start to write. This book will be worth the wait!

The official total of snow came to 36.2″ inches. Something dawned on me one day. I always wanted to experience being in a snowstorm in a mountain town in Colorado, and here it was, in May, and the Lord gave it to me! Wow!

Saturday evening, a small group of us gathered around the piano and sang and gave testimony! Such a beautiful time.

Love,
Sarah

“I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower,
and will watch to see what he will say unto me,
and what I shall answer when I am reproved.”
Habakkuk 2:1

  1. I’ve written a few books, though I have not been to a conference. I write some blogs. My views are a little more “libertarian” in life-style and views about life, but I do love to study bible and so forth.

    I have yet to read the Moody series. I love reading your book, “Keeping Our Children’s Hearts.”

  2. Which conference was it, Sarah? There’s a good Christian one that my aunt wants to take me to because she knows I love writing, but so far the Lord hasn’t worked it out for us to go. I also love writing. I’m still working on a book of my own.

    I like the picture of you out in the snow.

    Love, Rebecca

  3. Oh wow!
    looks like lots of fun!
    I wonder if there is anything like this on writing accurate historical fiction.
    I have to say my sisters were disappointed when the Moody series ended, but are extremely excited at the prospect of more book from you, they still read the Moody books and even build lego houses and using the books and there “people” act out the events in the series!

    1. Thank you for your sweet comment! After 12 years of the Moody Series, I felt the Lord’s leading to close that chapter, but I still would love to write children’s books. Thus, the next one is in process. I’m so excited. How sweet about your sisters. 🙂

      You know, at the conference I attended, I don’t remember workshops specifically on historical fiction. I do know there were a few writing historical fiction, and since that’s not my speciality, I didn’t think to ask how they learned the art! Very good question.

  4. The conference seems so neat, Sarah! And, wow, that’s an amazing amount of snow. It’s like you’re in a snowglobe! So glad the Lord blessed you with sweet fellowship and great tools for your writing, as well as the snowstorm 🙂

  5. Nice. I am working on a children’s book, it is the first one that I have ever done. We are still working on editing it. At least my family thinks that it’s good. My little sisters think it’s good the way it is, but it still needs work. I am thinking about becoming an author and writing books for children.
    I have also been giving some thought to writing a homeschool curriculum.

    1. Esther,

      That’s great! There is such a need for children’s books that have good role models and wholesome values! I strongly encourage you to purchase CDs from the writer’s conference I just went to. You’ll learn a ton from that, and it should give you a fabulous head start for what to do next. Just go to this link, and the order form is on the right hand side.

  6. That looks like SO much fun! I love to write. I’ve written several books and essays and I’m writing one for a summer book contest right now!
