I'm away from home

Came to a writer's conference in Northern Utah on Friday, a long drive from my home but worth the effort to meet with other writers, share ideas, listen to talks and workshops and get filled with enthusiasm to go home and write more. We were all ages from teens of 14 to 80 year olds who love to write and organize our thoughts, stories and poems on a paper or computer to share with others. Talked till midnight with my roommate last night sharing our life stories. I was so impressed how each person's life and family are filled with drama-tragedies, triumphs and trials. There are so many stories waiting to be told. So many voices to be heard. 

How do you share your life story with others?


  1. This sounds like a lot of fun, Lin. You are such a go getter! I admire your energy and zest for life.

  2. I guess that I am getting a start with my blog. I do like to write.
    What words of wisdom did you come away with?

  3. maybe you oughta have an online blog to help us not-so-gifted writers but people with thoughts...on how to put them down and make them into stories.

  4. I LOVE that you did this! I wish I could have been there. I need.. well, I'm not sure what I need to get me moving on writing my life story. I actually started it. I got to where I was married and had started my family, and just bored myself. So, I quit. I'll take it up again someday. Maybe I need to take it in smaller chunks and not try to get through it so fast. I dunno...
