Half the laundry’s done, some sleep is caught up, and I’m ready to dig into the waiting work. Was it worth it? Absolutely.
Had a chance to meet with some clients over dinner. Great fun. And to be in attendance when client, Kate Breslin, took home the Carol!
Why am I telling you this? Conferences. Conferences bring an eclectic group of folks together, all in one place, all full of stories, all wanting to find the right home for their stories. And all…getting each other. We know what makes each of us tick. We don’t cringe if we see someone’s lips moving, as if in dialogue, as they stand alone in the elevator. We don’t run the other way if they ask how to murder someone. And we don’t think it odd if they hunch over their laptops when in the middle of dinner. Speaking of dinner, these same odd folks dress up! In costume! By genre! I'm not kidding.
They are writers!
And the joy of spending 4 days squirreled away with so many nuts is called JOY.
Hope everyone arrived home safely, and I’m already planning for next year.
