By Writerinterrupted @writerinterrupt

This is the second ACFW conference I’ve missed since 2005. The second one in Indianapolis. Go figure! And while I fretted and lamented and whined about missing the first one, I’m much more mature this time around. Really! And this year YOU’RE gonna be jealous because I’m not going to ACFW. So try and be mature about it while you’re scrambling to finish last minute conference things this week and crying over the top 10 reasons you’re jealous I’m not going to ACFW this year!

10.  I’m NOT stressing or rewriting my one sheet, proposal, or opening chapters like you!

7.  I’m NOT worried about gaining five pounds from conference desserts, but you should be!

6,  No need to buy waterproof mascara to avoid raccoon eyes from the amazing worship and tear induced late night laughter with friends!
