So… *looking around the room like I’m trying to keep a secret* …I’m getting ready to go.
Yeah, I’m cleaning out the old statistics bag and filling it with important stuff – first chapters, notebook, pens, chocolate. (BTW, I totally passed that stats class. Mwa ha ha! I’m so glad.)
Why? because it’s conference time! Whoop, whoop (that’s my happy cry). I am on my way to mingle and meet with other awesomely cool writers, editors and agents. I’m very excited.
But also a little bit nervous. I won’t lie, last year after the conference I left discouraged. I didn’t feel like I was where I wanted to be in my writing. I wanted to be further ahead in my craft, I wanted to be querying, I wanted to be pitching my story to the professionals. Plus I totally lost that 1st chapters thing. *wiping tear from eye*
Well, now it’s a year later, I am writing my last chapter of my dystopian (I know…last chapter! Whoop!) I am revising my Incognito Burrito (and other things I did on my trip to Mexico). Things are looking up. I hope I can go to this conference and feel like I am getting on top of my game. Plus L.T. and I are hanging at our most righteous hotel room together this year (I love that girl!), so she will have to hear all my complaints and wishes (we may have to order midnight room service….do they have midnight room service? Oh, I hope so)!
This year will be great! And I won’t cry this time. Promise. Well, maybe a little.
So I am curious…Are you guys planning any awesome conferences this year??? I’d love to hear which ones, where they are and if you plan on getting room service. We should compare menus.
