Gearing Up....

As many of you know RWA Nationals is just around the corner. And I'm totally stoked.

Not only are there great workshops and parties, but I get to see friends (fellow authors) that I only get to see once a year.

I'm already anticipating what to take, what to wear, what to eat, drink and yes even when I'm going to fit in exercising.

Whew - are you as exhausted as I am already?

I didn't make any agent/editor appointments this year, as I don't have a manuscript completed, but that doesn't mean I won't enjoy talking to them at the bar or with friends.

The itinerary is getting full and as each day passes I find I'm getting edgier and edgier for this trip to be here.

I love all the information, but honestly, I can't wait to once again see my friends that through the rest of the year are email buddies or occasional phone friends.

So since I won't be around next week, I raise a glass of pink lemonade in salute and hope to see you all in Orlando.

Tell me what is the one thing you won't travel without?

Me = a book (even though I'll be getting way more than needed at this conference)

If I were going (couldn't afford it this year *pout*) I wouldn't leave home without a notebook and pens. Those my never leave home without item. Books are second on the list, but I have to have something to write on, in case the odd idea hits. :) Have fun at the conference, Laurie!

Juli -
You are so right on that. Ya know I might have to change my must have comment. Pen and paper are way more important there.
Gonna miss you

Yes, I need to have at least one book, if not more, with me when I travel. :) I also bring a notebook and pens.

I'm going to the conference this year! My first time. See you there. :)
