Whew! Having I have survived the siege on my personal domain with my sovereignty intact, I recovered quickly from having a malfunctioning body part removed. Sounds scary right? I thought so too, which was the reason for my panic about invading hordes last week. I managed to plan ahead well enough to discourage even the most insistent helpful friend. THANK GOODNESS!! The absolute last thing I want when recovering from illness or injury is someone stopping by to chat. Hair sticking in every direction is my personal right under such circumstances and I would feel the need to comb it or something if visitors arrived!
Anyway…DFW Writers Conference. Yea!!!
I am losing my jangly nerves about this and starting to get really excited.
Since I joined the writers group in August just before starting this blog, I have access to the Friday night happy hour meet and greet with all the agents, publishers and writers that will be part of the conference!!! AMAZING!
I just have to figure out what to say other than…ILoveYourBlogBookWorkAndItsSoCooltoMeetYou. Yeah, that is one word.
I am looking forward to meeting Weronica Janczuk from Lightning and Lightning Bugs a Publishing Blog and Rosemary Clement-Moore who wrote the fabulous Prom Dates from Hell series. Rosemary is part of the writers group, but she’s never been at the meetings when I have. I might even get to see her on Wednesday night since she is doing a little pre conference class at the group. Ok, so I might be stalking her just a teeny tiny bit, but only in the nicest—I totally want to be you—kind of way.
I would love to know if anyone has been to a writers conference before and has pointers. Do I really need business cards? They feel silly to me, but I want to network. Could I just print up a few dozen little cards with my contact info on them to hand to people who ask…. I’m more of a scrap of paper from my purse networker thus far, but I suppose I might run out of scraps if things go well.
