Chanticleer Authors Conference – A great place to be!

There is something magical about connecting with people who do what you do, set aside time to mingle, learn, be in the company of your tribe.

This weekend I’m in Bellingham, Washington at the beautiful Hotel Bellwether  for the Chanticleer Authors Conference, one of the only conferences that addresses the business of writing. It’s amazing. This is my third time here and I’m sinking into the rhythm of the conference, meeting new friends and welcoming old.



This is the time I get to feed my soul.

Sometimes I get caught up living. Keeping schedules, folding laundry, making connections . . . There always seems to be something I need to do and I put myself last, thinking, Oh, I’ll get to it, or worse, My needs aren’t as important as other’s.

Do you ever feel like that?

Well, this weekend is for me. I’m excited – So excited in fact that I had to post about it! I hope you’re doing well this weekend. I hope you’re finding Black raven watercolor paintingtime to do what nourishes your soul. I hope you find your tribe.
