See you in San Antonio!
I've got my bags packed, Lady Dazzleton has her favorite traveling tiara, and we're set to fly off to Texas before 0 Dark Thirty tomorrow!
Preparing for RWA Nationals has been a hectic whirlwind of making decorations for the FF&P Gathering (a fabulous party the Fantasy, Futuristic, and Paranormal chapter throws every year), getting edits completed (not quite there, but I will be!), and making sure the family gets a meal every so often (total fail on this one. Super hubby to the rescue!).
This year I'm doing more, seeing more, and experiencing the entire conference like never before. I'm going to as many parties as I can, volunteering a few times, and meeting with an editor from Harlequin, and a very cool agent. Fingers crossed they love my romantic suspense.
And I have a new roommate. Callene Rapp has never been to a RWA Conference before and she's rooming with ME. Oh, that poor girl. We're going to get into some serious mischief. But before you start thinking it's all play and no work, there are so many fabulous workshops to attend, I'll be dizzy from running to them all.
If you'll be in San Antonio, let's get together!
I'll be posting TONS of pictures and anecdotes from the conference on my facebook page. If you haven't liked it yet, now's a good time to jump in on all the fun. Here's a handy link to help you out. 🙂
Sleep well, my darlings. Tomorrow we'll be in Texas, y'all! Yeehaw!
Here's a teaser pic of Lady D with her Steampunk/cowgirl costume. Do you think she needs the tutu? I do! (The little hat on the side is what I'll be wearing to The Gathering. I think I'm in love with Steampunk, now.) I made the goggles and Lady D's hat. It was way too much fun.
