Come Find Me At the Conference

I'm so excited about the LDStorymakers Writers Conference. This will be the 5th one that I've attended, but because I made so many friends online this year, it seems to have new meaning. As much as I want to take the classes, learn from the presenters and meet agents and editors, I find myself being much more excited about meeting my new friends in person. I felt a little of this last year, but because I only met a few people online and hadn't really gotten into the Facebook/Twitter scene, I had no idea what anyone looked like. After spending the first day with my eyes glued to everyone's name tags, I gave up and spent most of my time as a wall flower. Not a good thing.

So this year, thanks to all the great pictures on Facebook and being more involved in blogging, I have familiar faces to look for. That got me to thinking, though. I look nothing like the picture I have posted on this blog. For one thing, I wear glasses and my hair is a little different. And for another, well . . . let's just say you can't see ALL of me in that picture. I'm rather, what's the word? FAT! Yep that's it. But that just leaves more of me to love, right.

So when you're looking for me, and I hope you all do, just search for the rather ROUND woman whose lovable, cuddly self is waiting to hug a new friend. Hope to see you all there.

Don't you just love the resemblance?

I love Miss Piggy.

OH, And on a side note. Because I will be at Conference next week, I won't be posting here. But I hope to have some cool pics to post the following week. WOO HOO!


  1. Hey, be nice to my friend. She's BEAUTIFUL! (And Miss Piggy rocks. She's confident, happily in love (all the time), and has great hair.)

    Can't wait to see you!

  2. I too, am wearing glasses. I am also quite round myself. It's funny how I don't mind the roundness in someone else at all, but I do for myself. :D

    I look forward to meeting you next week!

  3. Christine: Can't wait to meet you in person! See you there.

  4. See ya there, my friend. And FYI, I love you just the way you are--because what you are is a gorgeous, fantabulous woman who has many incredible talents.

    Plan to party. Just sayin.

  5. I'll look for you. It would be great to meet you in person!

  6. Christine--you are so beautiful inside and outside... BTW--I like Miss Piggie--always been my favorite muppet! :)

  7. Christine, I'm excited to meet you. As a first year (if they had a Hogwarts hat sorting ceremony, I'd be a Hufflepuff for sure) I'm very nervous. Excited too. I can't believe I've been missing out for so long. :)

  8. so wish I was going to the conference! I would love to finaly meet you in person. Have lots of fun!!
