Pre-Conference Mix & Mingle

 
Author Laurie Tomlinson started a great Pre-Conference Mix & Mingle on her blog last week! It’s a great way to “meet” some fellow conferees before we travel to ACFW in a few short weeks. Visit her blog here to find out more and to meet other writers. You’ll have a few more friends waiting for you when you walk into ACFW in Indianapolis!
 
If you’re interested in joining, here’s what to do:
– Fill out your own answers (you don’t have to answer all of them!) in a post on your own website and paste the URL to that post (not your home page) on Laurie’s blog using a handy link-up tool she provides. If you don’t have a website, feel free to answer the questions in the comments below!
– 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.

Here are the questions and my answers!

Name: Ruth Tredway

Location: Bolivar, MO

What you write/tagline: Historical Fiction, current work is post Civil War westward expansion setting. / “Looking back (history) – Reaching up (faith) – Going forward”

Place in the book world: Pre-published author, a novel in progress, and working on a portfolio of shorter submissions to periodicals.

On a scale of hugger to 10-foot-pole, please rate your personal space: Hugging is not my first response, but I won’t refuse a hug if offered!

The unique talking point that will get you going for hours: Quilts / Nutrition / Trivia I’ve learned in my reading/research.

People at home you’ll be missing: My husband, Walt, and our local church family.

Conference goals we can pray for? That God will refresh my vision and desire to Write His Answer, and wisdom to let Him direct where to pitch my work. And for physical comfort, dealing with a touchy sciatic nerve and lots of sitting.

Up for any contests/awards? Not this time, but it will come.

Any disclosures, disclaimers, or crucial information we must know? I’m more of a listener than a talker, and love to hang out where people are chatting. I’m a plotter, and I love research! Weird, I know, but true.
