Don’t Let The Fire Go Out. OHCWC

Yesterday I flew home after spending a little over a week in Ohio. I went to teach a few workshops at The Ohio Christian Writers Conference. Y’all it was a BLAST.

This was my first time attending a writers conference and I feel honored to have been able to teach and meet so many awesome people.

I started working for Serious Writer Inc. this summer and getting to meet and hug the team in person, as we all live in different states, was such a blessing.

There was such an exciting energy surrounding the conference. I LOVE seeing people pursue their passions…and writers are some PASSIONATE people!!

I got to sit down with so many incredible men and women and hear their stories, read their proposals, hold their already published works, and hear their goals. You can’t help but feel a fire start inside you when you’re surrounded by so many people pursuing their talents and dreams.

I was there to help writers with their platform building, social media, etc. and even I felt motivated to keep writing in my own field. I LOVE how people sharpen one another.

It’s so easy to go home when conferences are over and let that fire go out. It dims as we get back to normal life and have to deal with our responsibilities and such.

My encouragement to you is to pray over that fire you felt inside you. Pray that God keeps the flames going and only getting stronger. 

Keep writing, continue to learn, don’t stop. Get on a social media routine and build that platform! Connect with others, join writing groups, network, and encourage others.

When you’re doing what you know you’ve been called to do, satan is going to try to trip you up and discourage you. Walk in truth and continue running after your goals. Give God the glory, do the work, and He will do the rest.

Meeting you all was such a blessing to my heart and I am so excited to watch your journey either begin or continue.

Below are a few pics from my week.

Never give up. You’re awesome and God’s got big things in store for you sweet friend.
