On a normal Thursday night at this hour I would be in bed. But this is not a normal Thursday night.
Shane and I went to a meeting for the Heart of America Christian Writers Network. It was an encouraging time. The speaker, Janet Stapleton, the Rights & Licensing Manager for Nazarene Publishing House in Kansas City, Missouri spoke to us about copyright laws for the author and answered a multitude of questions after her presentation. It was very fascinating and informative. And definitely worth the $10 Shane and I paid to enter the meeting. This is a group I’ve been following on Facebook for some time, but had never made a it to a meeting. I think it’s going to be a regular occurance. And if this meeting was any indication, Shane and I will be hitting up their conference in October.
I checked the gas gage before the meeting and though close to the E I wasn’t worried. I had driven this new to us car home 48 hours ago and the gas light had not come on.
I had forgot that we had driven farther than we had planned when we arrived at the wrong church 20 minutes before the meeting started.
Driving down the highway towards home the car begins to lurch. It was then I realized
Please make it. The gas station is not that far.
So now we sit in this place. In our new to us car. In the dark. Thankfully we coasted to a side street.
Waiting for AAA.
And the truck just pulled up.
Less than 5 minutes pass…and we’re back on our way.
On a side note, ain’t she cute? I named her Scubi Roo…
Linking up with Kate and the gang at Five Minute Friday where the one word prompt was place.
