It’s been a rocky two days. First, I obsessed over missing my jeep while it’s getting an overhaul. Then I obsessed about clothes for the National conference. When DH left for two months? It all came out. I don’t think I really cared about the jeep or the clothes, LOL, but it was a heck of a lot easier to obsess about those than think about missing DH.
Boy, do I miss him.
Last night I slept under the open sky in a hammock. Pure bliss.
Today I’m cleaning before National and packing. Liz Wolfe has wisely advised that I do what I need to do to get what I need out of the conference.
Sadly, it doesn’t seem they have what I most need: marketing info, what to do with your work after it’s published, your career after "how to pitch, query ...", etc.
Barring that, I pretty much just want to talk to adults. Most of my conversation is with kids, and when I’m not teaching, I’m sitting in a corner and writing.
I’m not nervous about my clothes anymore, but I am nervous about my schedule. There are several 15-hour days. What was I thinking??? I have a feeling I’ll be skipping quite a few workshops. And I wanted to write while I’m there, too!
So anyway, if you’re going, what do you want/need to get out of the conference? If you were going, why would you go?
