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.
