Okay friends…I’ve been a little radio silent on the blog lately…and social media. The new school year and travel has thrown off my routine a bit. I’m hoping to get back to regularity in my writing routine after I return from the American Christian Fiction Writers Conference. This year is my second year attending conference, and I can’t wait for a few days to immerse myself in the writing world.
So this post is part of a fun little mixer hosted by Laurie Tomlinson in order for conference goers to connect a little before we arrive. Thanks Laurie for making this happen!
Here’s how to play:
– Copy/paste the questions and fill out your own answers in a post on your own website and paste the URL to that specific post (not your homepage) using the handy link-up tool on Laurie’s page. Just click on the button at the bottom of her original post that says “Add your link”. If you don’t have a website, feel free to answer the questions in her comments!
– Make sure to link back to Laurie’s post after you fill out your answers so any of your readers who are conference attendees can participate, too! The more, the merrier.
– Click through the links on her page to get to know other conference attendees!
Here are my answers!
Name: Amanda Cox
Location: Chattanooga, TN
What you write/tagline/trademark: I write stories that dig into the intricacies of our connection with God and with one another.
Place in the book world: Unpublished with a couple projects looking for their publishing home
On a scale of hugger to 10-foot-pole, please rate your personal space: Uhh…. Well if you are a hugger I’m game. But I am not a hug initiator…nope….
Something VERY serious: How do you take your Starbucks? All the coffee. Anywhere. Any kind. But I do have a special fondness for the seasonal Caramel Brûlée Latte 🙂
The unique talking points that will get you going for hours: Kids, pets, Character arcs. Honestly, I’m not a big talker, but I could listen to other people all day. (Unless I know you really well, in which case I can have a tendency to never shut up….I don’t talk to adults that often…so….)
Loved ones at home you’ll be missing: My husband and three kids (ages 2,4, and 6). My sweet senior golden retriever and our new addition, a bengal kitten.
Conference goals we can pray for? Making new connections with writer friends. Boldness. A creativity renewal. I just feel a need for fresh life to be breathed into my writing life.
Anything we can celebrate with you? Since conference last year, I’ve completed a novel that had been bouncing around in my mind. Looking forward for the opportunity to pitch it this year :). Mostly because I just love talking about this story :D.
I hope to meet you all in Dallas next week!
It’s your turn! Don’t forget to go back to Laurie’s page to post your blog link when you’re done!
