Chic Lit and Rob Wells conference
« on: March 16, 2006, 05:06:58 PM »
So, I know this was mentioned in Rob Well's post, but I just wanted to make sure we got the word out.

LDStorymakers is doing a writer's conference, and here are the details.

http://www.ldstorymakers.com/conference.html

Rob is doing 'Laugh your head off: Humor in books.'

Jules and I (Jules is like Precious Jewels here or something), we're doing 'A guide to chic lit: the newest rage in LDS fiction).

James Dashner (he's like Jamestown here), is doing tons of stuff, master of ceremonies, Hooks and Cliffhangers, Follow Your Wierdness, and he's team teaching with me: 'Let's Pretend: writing Fantasy,' where I will emphasize 'let's pretend,' and he  emphasizes 'writing fantasy.'

Also, our own controversial Jeff Savage (savage beast, I think) will be doing 'All that and a bag of chips, Marketing and self promotion,' and 'The book recipe.'

And there's tons more of us, so do come if you're interested.

And for those concerned (Fellfrosch), I will be turning my cell phone off!--but if I happen to make a call, the exit signs are marked.

You have your own discussion forum now Stephanie? Sheesh. Who are all these people who comment here?

What did you say at this conference?

Ha! I'm going to wait and see if Stephanie can figure out who I am first.  :)

lol. I almost forgot about this place.

Let's see, let's play a game I'll call, The Truth is Revealed, in which we find startling truths within the subtext of "Rules of Engagement" I'll start.

On pg.. 101 speaking about a guys apartment we read "Fliers and leftover paint from pranks gone wrong covered the door in a platter of graffiti." Well whose fault is that, Stephanie? Whose fault is that!

See, the truth is revealed here. Stephanie puts crap on the doors of guys apartments just so she can write about how trashy they look in her book. The truth is revealed!

Another startling passage comes on page 106, which contains the following starling dialogue, "Emma was shocked, "What? You read some of his notes?" "No, I read all of his notes."

The truth is revealed! All the time Stephanie claimed that she wasn't reading other peoples honey pot notes before she delivered them. But she clearly was! Emma is obviously Stephanie's roommate, and the conscienceless one is Stephanie. Sad, sad day.

Oh, there are more. Many more. Like the part where the narrator mocks the guys' excellently developed stadium seating in their living room, secretly revealing Stephanie's contempt for stadium couches, even though she had no complaints when SHE was sitting on them! The truth is revealed indeed.

Those pranks were NOT me! Well, not the ones with the paint...anyway...and YOU know exactly who did those! And...I would never read anyone's honeypot notes...unless that person was sitting in front of me and knew exactly what I was doing, ha ha!

Oh, and I love stadium seating. We have them at my house house in Washington...but they are fun to mock, I'll admit! But then you were such an easy target.

Ah heck, here's a question for you? Did you hold Tenderheart against his will when he clearly desired only to be in our arms? He loved us better. Does that chafe? Well, it better.

Now you mock Tenderheart's pain. There is a special place in hell for reserved people who kidnap Care Bears. And I know some people who are going there.

Yeah? Well, at least I have a special reservation there...unlike some losers.

Um, I believe I'm still the Disney Princess Enchanted Dream Ball champion, which definitely makes me a winner.

By the way, I saw an abridged audiobook version of Rules of Engagement at Seagull. Who did the narration on that? Did you do it? That would be funny.

I'm pretty sure being the Disney Princess Enchanted Dream Ball champion makes only the winner of the losers.

Well, it definitely proves you're secure in your masculinity, which all my friends are by the way...uh, the male ones.

And no, I didn't do the audio version of my book, maybe this next one if I beg like a little girl!
