Conference 2005

Diann Hunt, Kristin Billerbeck, Me, Colleen Coble
The 4th anual ACFW conference has come and gone. I'm exhausted. I flew to Nashville Sunday the 11th and hit the ground running and did not stop until yesterday afternoon when Sydney walked me down to the hotel's massage room in the hotel and said, "Enjoy!"

There is so much to blog, I cannot capture the week with words, but the hightlight was last Wednesday. Colleen Coble, Diann Hunt, Denise Hunter and I met the West Bow Press staff, went to lunch and toured the facilities of Thomas Nelson. We had a great time. What a great team. It was so weird to walk into a publishing house and have them go, "Oh, you must be Rachel Hauck. Welcome!!"

One person, Jennifer, who works in advertising, read my proposal and told me how she loved it. Then the publisher's assistant, Lisa, took me to song writers night at the Bluebird. Now, last Sunday Susan Warren, Kaye Dacus and I went to the Bluebird. We enjoyed those songwriters a lot, but Saturday night were published song writers who had multiple hits. Wow! It was fantastic. Amazing songs, amazing guitar work.

To be continued. . .

Great blog entry! I love the pic. Just realized that I carried my digital camera in my purse all w/end and never once took it out. Also just realized that we got no photos of our group together. (sniff.) Oh, well, maybe next year! :)
