How To Recognize Me

Okay. I just need to calm down.

My critique partners and I are leaving in the morning for the Moonlight & Magnolias conference, hosted by the Georgia Romance Writers group. And I’m almost too excited to sit still.

There are six of us riding to Atlanta together, squeezing into one minivan along with our luggage, laptops, garment bags, straightening irons, curling irons, chocolate and whatever else is deemed essential to a successful trip.

OMG I can't believe I'm here!!!If you’re going, here’s how you can recognize me. I’ll be wearing this face the entire time. If you see me, say hello and tell me to wipe that look off my face.

This is my first conference, so I have no idea what to expect. There are tons of seminars and workshops, along with guest speakers and a book fair. I’ll be pitching my manuscript to two agents. I don’t stop to think about that, because if I did I’d be too petrified to keep going.

Even if I freeze up and do nothing but sit there and drool in front of the agents, I won’t come home unhappy. This thing is bound to be a good time, if only for the company I’ll be keeping. My critique partners are strong, talented, amazing women bound for publication.

And if you give ’em a little wine, they’re a hoot, too.

    I wish I could go to M&M! I hear it’s a wonderful conference, so I’m sure you will have a fabulous time!

  2. I was thinking you’d forgotten the wine for a moment there. Not that we need it to have an awesome time. Don’t forget the chocolate — not that I need that either! Thanks for the compliments. Can’t wait to hang out with you. Expect Fun, Fun, Fun and info overload!

    Awwww. Right back atcha girlie. We’re going to have a blast. Six women in one car for several hours…I’m sure there won’t be a dull moment and I promise not to hit the wine until we get there:)

    Adorable! At least you’re not all over the place like I am!! Eeeeek! This weekend will be a great experience for all.

  6. You did not make that face once, but I hope you still had a wonderful time. We are so lucky to have met you! Hope the conference was everything you wanted it to be.

    • It definitely was. This was my very first conference, and it was everything it was cracked up to be. I learned things I can use RIGHT NOW in my writing, and that’s invaluable.

      Plus we all had a great time — y’all have a wonderful chapter. Thanks so much for everything!
