Re:Write Conference Retrospective

Can I just say, Wow! I mean, W-O-W!

Attending Re:Write, was the most incredible conference experience ever!

Author wisdom, writing inspiration, life perspective, an ocean of new faces, abundant stories, it was all so overwhelming and deer-in-the-headlights-ish. Solid, yet simple reminders of how to persevere in the uphill mental battle of writing.

Drinking from a dozen fire hoses, is what it felt like!

Thank you for praying, for believing and cheering me forward. I need that. We all need that. Comfort blanketed as I stepped into the scared knowing there was a team of people waving a banner and ushering me into a dream. Thank you to amazing parents who helped us financially and savored time with our boys because they believe in being a part of my journey. Humble gulps, I swallowed them every minute of the weekend. Gratitude praise is what flows out now.

Dry cotton mouth.

Racing heart… thump, thump, THUMP, THUUUUUMMMMPPPP!!!

Itchy armpits.

Sweat.

We all know this sensation- the where in the world did this come from? feeling.

Whatever title we attach it to- scared, fear, anxiety… it’s all the same. It’s that notion that we are not in control and our body is reacting.
