I don't know if you have noticed my widget just to the left of this post, but it is for my ANWA writer's Conference coming next week.  I am so stoked.  I'm even staying at the hotel with my ANWA sisters so I can be there to enjoy every single minute of it.

Do you like to write?  Do you wish you were a better writer?  Do you have something to say and don't know where to start?

I'm not even talking about necessarily having your work published, but that would be a bonus, wouldn't it?  I  joined ANWA when there wasn't even a group in my area.  I got the newsletter every month and wished I lived closer to other women who enjoyed writing.  When I moved to Mesa, I was blessed to be a part of a fabulous group of women who met monthly and encouraged and supported each other in their writing.

I've made fabulous friends and learned tons about writing in general.  All I wanted to ever do was work on family history stories and get them written down.  Now, I write for a newspaper and I get paid!!  I even finished the first draft of a novel back in November.

Conference is a time to really get excited about my work and to learn new skills while spending time with others who love to write as much as I do.  Come join us for the two and a half days, or just one day!  For more information about the conference, click here. www.anwawritersconference.com or for more information about our organization for LDS women, click here.  www.anwa-lds.org.

You know you want to come hang with me and my writer friends.


  1. I will be there for the first time this year-- and I'm terrified and excited and counting down the days, too.


  2. I can't wait to meet you Mama Rachel! You will have such a great experience, I can already tell you that. The ANWA leadership always does a fabulous job of putting this together and it gets better every year. Please look for me!!
