I don’t know of a time in my life when I wasn’t wondering about something. As a kid I wondered about the man on the moon (I thought he looked like my Uncle Phil). I wondered about worms and birds and rain and the neighbor girl down the road named Bambi (she was an interesting one, that Bambi).
Some days I wondered so much I’d miss things. I’d forget about homework or chores. I neglected to listen during math class. After all, who can pay attention to theorems and yada yada yada when the snow is falling so prettily?
I guess it’s a good thing I ended up being a writer. I mean, it’s my JOB to sit and watch birds in my yard and walk around parks and sniff fallen leaves.
Wonder is part of my job description.
I think that’s one reason I was so geeked when my favorite conference, Breathe Christian Writers Conference decided to make this year’s theme “Awaken Your Wonder”.
YES! A whole weekend to get together with other writers and allow ourselves to soak in wonder. I can’t wait for October 9 and 10 so I can sit and wonder with my friends.
Wondering alone is cool. Wondering with other creative types is phenomenal.
I’d love for you to join us.
If you’re a writer (or have a desire to get started in a writing life) this conference is one you don’t want to miss.
Why not? Here are some reasons…
-Award winning, bestselling author Steven James is our keynote (if you like suspense, you’d like his work).
-More than 25 breakout sessions to choose from on topics ranging from YA literature to songwriting, memoir to writing a proposal, blogging to all things fiction, ideas for starting a writing life to poetry.
-The price is $150 for two days. That includes dinner on Friday and lunch on Saturday, coffee breaks with snacks, a dessert reception on Friday night, and two days of BIG TIME inspiration. A few years ago I went to a conference that I thought was so-so and paid over $600. Breathe is a bargain.
-You’ll make friends with other writers at all different skill levels.
-And so many more benefits
Here’s the thing, if you’re interested in Breathe, you need to act fast. Registration closes next Wednesday (September 30, 2015). Act fast, my friends! Very fast.

I sure would love to spend a couple days wondering alongside you. Wouldn’t that be the best kind of fun?
