Staying Home

Many authors I know are going through an annual tradition of shopping, dieting, ordering business cards and trying on every pair of shoes they own. Yes, the RWA National Conference is starting this week. Last year I had a blast attending the conference held in Anaheim, CA so thought about going this year, but I just couldn't justify going to Atlanta so I'm staying home.

I'm happy with that decision since I'll be heading to San Diego for four days next week! I don't miss the frenzy of getting ready for RWA. At least that's how it felt to me and based on the Facebook posts from this year's conference-goers, some of them feel the same way.

But I do enjoy reading about everyone's preparation and packing. The pics of shoes crack me up. How many pairs of shoes does an author need for a four day conference? The number would surprise you!

So I'll be around this week and blogging. What will you be doing?

I'd love to go back some day. I enjoyed my one and only RWA conference so much.

But it is stressful even without worrying about shoes.

I will be going to visit my sister tomorrow. She has been in the hospital all last week but she is home now.

It's close enough for me to attend the Literacy signing and thanks to two vet visits today I can't go. One of these years.....
Hope you had a good day!
