As the first day of the Southern Christian Writers Conference wound down, I was fortunate to be in a roomful of writers excited and enlightened about the World Wide Web.
The program listed this informal breakout session as “Using the Internet (Blogs, websites) in Your Writing”
The small-group session turned into an exchange of ideas, writer-to-writer, blogger-to-blogger that will certainly be a highlight of the day.
There were no PowerPoint presentations or even a projector where we could look at Web sites and do demonstrations.
Instead a circle of women– Godly women– who had the insight and interest to share what they are doing, want to do and won’t do in the online environment, told their stories.
There was plenty of time for questions and answers.
Yes, it was a little weird being the only dude in the bunch. (Perhaps God orchestrated this environment to inspire me as a single man that there’s hope-SMILE)
But, this was all about how to leverage the collective wisdom in that room and inspire each other.
I think our Southern Christian Writers Facebook Group will grow as a result of this session.
But, most of all, I believe some new Christian blogs are going to be springing up within days of this conference ending.
Can’t wait to see them.
