Conference Month!

Hey, it's RWA National Conference month over at the Wet Noodle Posse. Follow my link directly to your left for some first hand, first rate, been-there, done-that advice from some really wonderful and generous writers.

I thought Dallas was amazing. I learned so much by just listening to everyone around me, fellow unpublished to fan-girl worthy pros. One of my favorite moments was sharing an elevator ride with Teresa Medeiros. She is the sweetest person ever!

I'm not going this year--ah, the economy has struck again!--but I know a bunch of you are! Very excited? Pitches polished? Comfy shoes shined? Seat at the bar already reserved? :)

Seasoned veterans, what's your favorite thing about Nationals? Newbies, what are you looking forward to the most? Any good stories of your own to pass along?

Where did the month go?

Good grief. I cannot believe it's the last day of June. Of course, I've been having all sorts of bizarre conversations with people for the last two weeks in which I cannot remember which day of the week it is, so I guess I shouldn't be surprised. We're on summer time now, and it's hit hard. Up very late (for us), up late in the mornings (for the girls, the dog waits for no one :) ), and doing all sorts of normal summery things.

The fireworks are going off like crazy around here already! So let me sneak in an early Happy Fourth of July, since on the fourth I'll be running around like a crazy person, or dozing in a lawn chair. No in between for us around here!

What do you do for the 4th?

I've been Tagged by Alice to sum up my life in six words or less.

Yikes! The switch from non-stop school activities to summer sloth has melted our brains around here, but I'll try . . .

Embrace the Chaos, Treasure the Now.

That's nice and Zen. :)

Now to tag others that I love to read--

Terry Jo, brilliant researcher of all things western, and Marnee Jo, slaving away over a wonderful WIP with the rest of us.

What about the rest of you? Could you sum up your life in six words or less? Or if not your entire life, what about your life right now?
