I just got home from the American Fork Arts Council conference, where I spoke in the plenary session and then did four panels. I’m still alive! I didn’t throw up or anything.

I met loads of great new people and learned a few things about how conferences work. I’ve learned so much at these things over the years so it’s great to give back.

And next weekend…LDS Storymakers. Can’t wait!
