From a full-time employee, to a stay-at-home writer-wife-mommy, to a part-time employee, and then back to a full-time day-job working, multi-published single mom with fiction deadlines and freelance journalism deadlines, Betsy believes she has a lot to offer on the topic of time management! In her lecture, Betsy will discuss the myriad of time-related obstacles obstructing a writer's path as well as offer insight into the deeper issues of motivation behind them. She will then offer practical solutions through the PAMPER steps she created that will allow each writer to better manage their time. Each attendee will also go home with a fun memento to remember their PAMPER steps and apply them to their writing lives. Betsy encourages attendees to be prepared to volunteer personal time struggles from their own lives as examples they can work through together as a class.
Betsy St. Amant has a heart for three things – chocolate, new shoes and sharing the amazing news of God’s grace through her novels. She lives in Louisiana with her adorable story-telling young daughter, a collection of Austen novels, and an impressive stash of Pickle Pringles. A freelance journalist and fiction author, Betsy is a member of American Christian Fiction Writers and is multi-published in Contemporary Romance. Her ninth Love Inspired novel released in January 2014, while her first romance with Zondervan Publishers comes out August 2014. When she’s not reading, writing, or singing along to the Tangled soundtrack with her daughter, Betsy enjoys inspirational speaking and teaching on the craft of writing, and can usually be found somewhere in the vicinity of a white-chocolate mocha.
