A sabbatical often includes a conference — a time of focused learning. Last week I was able to attend the OCW (Oregon Christian Writers) summer conference. We were fed good teaching and encouraging insights. The keynote talks kept me paging through my pocket Bible that now attends conferences with me. Today I processed most of the notes from the conference, trying to bring to the forefront of my thinking what I want to remember.
We write – and create – with God. I’m looking forward to seeing what God will do as I try to assimilate (partake of God and His Word) that one thought. I spent part of the morning reading through what little I can find of Allen Arnold’s talks and may revisit the links again to give this concept further consideration.
Another thought that will help me stay focused:
Writers are people who write, not people who get published.
I heard this from Susan Brower, not sure who originally said it.
