This is it, the last weekend before the RWA convention in San Diego. My desk is littered with sticky notes reminding me to do everything from call the credit card company to write a short thank you speech – just in case I do get extremely lucky and win the Golden Heart. I think there are several notes scattered around my house reminding me to practice my pitch.
The other item prominently displayed on my desk is a packing list of items to take along. The last few weeks, I have seen several versions of lists floating around on various sites. All of them have many useful suggestions for items someone spending long days walking around a conference might find useful. Here are some examples of things I might have forgotten or simply never considered:
This wasn’t the entire list, but you get the idea. Sometime in the next few days, I will go down the list and gather up everything. (Except an umbrella. I’m taking a chance I won’t need it in San Diego.) The next time I blog will most likely be after I return home from the RWA conference. I’ll let you know then how it went – or what I forgot to pack.
I write historical fiction, and I invite you to share the journey to published author with me.
