Just call me Conference Girl from now on

Apparently I can't get enough of conferences. Just as the Southampton Writers Conference was wrapping up, I decided to go ahead and apply for the NYC Pitch and Shop conference in September. While SWC was a craft workshop, and very beneficial, this one is for pitch sessions. With editors. Like, face to face. Yikes. 

So I received the email today that my synopsis was accepted and I can go ahead and send them my 500 bucks. I have no clue if that's a great thing or if they take every schmo who bothers to apply, but I DO know I have to get my ass in gear and finish this sucker now. 

It's okay. I work better under pressure.

I think.

Anybody wanna babysit my kids for the next two months?

Wow, look at you go! Good luck finishing that puppy up. :)

I have to say, you're really inspiring me to find a conference I can go to myself.

Oh man, oh man, I'd LOVE to! But 500 smackeroonies? I've got to sink that into our remodeling. *sigh*

I agree with Wendy, Janna. Go for it!

Free loding in NYC. It's totally worth it, my friend.
