I’ve just returned from a mountaintop experience, both literally and spiritually. This was my third time at the Blue Ridge Mountains Christian Writers Conference. The theme for the week was A Writers Journey.

Here are some of my notes from the conference:

A bend in the road is not the end of the road unless you fail to make the turn – Al Gansky

Click here for a great poem.

Click here for a great research resource.

When writing scenes, try to avoid eating a meal and discussions in cars.

Don’t have experts explain to other experts.

Stop being so literary.

Do not try to be clever.

The heart of a good story is tension and the heart of tension is unmet desire.
