For a Good Cause?

Charlie Bear here with a message about leaving. Mom Peep leaves me home with Dad when she goes off to writers conferences. Heck, I don’t mind (I love having time with Dad), but there’s something special that happens to her when she goes to these things. Maybe you’ve been to one? More than one? Then you might know what I mean.

Mom comes home on cloud twelve. In dog words, it would be like going to the dog park and spending the whole day there sniffing, running, playing, romping–getting exhausted, but in a good way.

Mom says that’s just what happens! From morning ’til night the fun goes on. (Here’s a pic of Mom Peep and her Guideposts writer friends enjoying camaraderie and popcorn one night.)

There are workshops, major morning tracks focused on their writing genre (that’s a weird word, don’t you think?), keynote speakers, meetings with editors and agents and other writers, and then even night owl sessions for those who don’t go to bed early, like me. (Here’s a pic of Mom and the class of night owls learning about writing for Chicken Soup.)

These were all taken at the Mount Hermon Christian Writers Conference in March of this year. Coming up on the agenda for Mom is an October conference: Antelope Valley Christian Writers’ Conference.

She’s also been approached about teaching at the FCWC Florida Christian Writers Conference in February/March. She’s never been to this one before, have any of you? (she says it looks pretty and sounds like tons of fun)

I’d say it’s definitely for a good cause when Mom Peep goes away. Do you have plans to go away this summer? What does it do for you?

Wiggles and woofs,
Charlie Bear

    Charlie B, I do not go to writers Conferences, I just read about them but I am glad she gets to go, enjoy & have some fun, I will not go anywhere this year cause am not hardly able to get around much. You’ll have fun though and enjoy the places you go to.

    Waddles & Wiggles!

      I might be going out to the desert for a short trip soon. That will be fun. I do like my own home though and my own bed here. You?

    Charlie Bear, I agree totally with you! Genre is a weird word. And your mom peep is so much fun at conferences. I’m thrilled for all the good things in store for her this year! She just knows how to make people smile, doesn’t she. 🙂 Plus, she’s an amazing teacher. I’ve been to one of her classes!

      Awww shucks…I told Mom Peep the nice things you said about her and she blushed! She says “thanks…and you are the sweetest!”
      Extra wiggles to you,
      Charlie Bear

    Oh, Charlie Bear, our Mom Peep just loves writers conferences. She says they’ve changed her writing life. She’s gotten four of her book contracts at writers conferences by meeting editors or agents.
    She speaks at them too. She’s on faculty at the Montrose Christian Writers Conference in July this year. She says it’s the best one in the whole wide world. Too bad we don’t live close to each other. We could hang out together and boo hoo on each other’s shoulders when our Mom Peeps are gone for a few days or a week. But I guess it pays off. Our Mom Peep comes home on Cloud Twelve too.
    Keep on truckin’, Charlie babe. Skippy and Honey Hubler

      Skippy and Honey,
      You know just what I mean! I love to see her go even though I miss her, cause she comes back all happy, just like your Mom Peep. Congrat’s to Marsha on the book contracts! Keep nosing her out the door for more, my furry friends!
      You keep truckin’ too, Skippy and Honey!
      Wiggles to you,
      Charlie Bear
