WIFYR 2009

I love writing conferences. I get to hang out with my writing friends. I get to learn all kinds of great stuff about writing. I get to network with really cool people. I get to meet new writing friends. And, of course, I get to buy new books. What's not to love about that?

Last week was absolutely fabulous. I spent the entire week at BYU sitting next to Janette Rallison, who I have been stalking for a couple of years now. I'm not sure she appreciated me camping out right next to her. But it certainly worked for me. She is so talented and fun. I learned more than I think my brain can hold and had a couple of moments of epiphany which changed not only me as a person, but changed me as a writer. Best of all, I got to laugh. A lot. I also got to cheer on writing friends as they made incredible strides with their writing careers.

As Mattie would say, it was hdra (hands down rockin' awesome).

Here's some of the pics of my great friends.

I love these people. What can I say more?

Which Character Am I?

Personality tests. I never take them. I delete and ignore them all. I'm not sure why. Maybe it's because I don't care what kind of personality I have or who I'm like. But I saw my fab friend, Kristi, post one and decided to take it. Just for the heck of it. And because she said that her character matched her perfectly.

She wasn't kidding when she said hers was right on. That Jane Austen character really does fit her. Well, so does mine. And here she is.

You are Elinor Dashwood of Sense & Sensibility! You are practical, circumspect, and discreet. Though you are tremendously sensible and allow your head to rule, you have a deep, emotional side that few people often see.

I am Elinor Dashwood!

Take the Quiz here!

I know you were all wondering which character I was. And now you know.
