Sara Grant Conference

Just over a week ago I had the chance to listen to Sara Grant speak at a small conference in Carmel, Indiana. I must say, out of all the conferences I have been to, large and small, this was one of the most informative ever! Sara provided us with a plethora of information on ghost writing and Working Partners. She gave tips, advice, and solid information we could use. But, she didn't stop there. She then went into novel revision, and used her work to show concrete examples of how she tackles major problems in the revision process. The abundance of information was so valuable. I can't think of a better way to spend $35 and learn so much.

Plus, I got to eat a fabulous lunch at Ted's Montana Grill. If you've never been there and ever have the chance, you must try it. I had a bison burger that was so juicy and fresh. Everything they serve is made daily and the homemade pickles were out of this world! The best part of the restaurant is the mentality behind it - everything, from the paper straws to the butcher paper tablecloths, is recyclable. This was quite an experience. I dined with my fabulous writer friend, Peggy Archer. She was great company and took many pictures, which I will have her send me. Once I get them, I'll post a few so you can enjoy them too.

Thanks for stopping by,
