Well, all this week I've been getting myself ready for the RWA National Convention that is next week in New York City!
I've been to writer's conventions before but this is my first National one, so I already know I'm going to be constant mental overload. But who cares? I'll look good at least!
Toenails are painted.
Hair is trimmed. (Although not colored and now I'm mad at myself for not coloring it because my roots are taunting me.)
Nevertheless I'm really excited about the Avalon Books party I was invited to on Wednesday night. Since Avalon is located in NYC, they're having the party there so I'll get see what my publishing house actually looks like and meet my editor in person! Exciting!
I'm wearing this cute black dress that I got at Marshall's for $12.
Ooops. I probably shouldn't admit that but my girlfriend was quite upset at my find because she bought a similar dress at Anthroplogie for at least six times the price.
And check out these shoes I'm wearing with my dress:
But...what the heck. You only break your neck once. LOL
I volunteered to help out with registration on Wednesday morning. So of course that means I miss the Samhain breakfast. (figures) And then I decided to be extra nice and volunteer to help out with editor/agent appointments Thursday afternoon and as a result I'm missing the ONE workshop I really really really...REALLY wanted to go to. (Again, figures) But that's okay. I'll live.
Anyhew, I skimmed the workshop schedule a few times and already have a good idea of what I plan on taking (although I'll probably change my mind a few times from now until then).
So if you'll be at the RWA convention, be on the look out for the amazon wearing the animal print shoes and stop me to say HI (or catch me if I start to look wobbly). :)
Have you ever been to Nationals? What's your favorite writer's convention?
