Conference mania

I spent this past weekend at the Desert Dreams conference in Scottsdale, put on by the Desert Rose chapter of RWA. What a fine conference! I loved every minute of it, even if I want to sleep for a week now. I did a workshop about finding catchy titles/premises (even if the title is later changed...). My editor Leah Hultenschmidt at Dorchester was kind enough to do the workshop with me and thanks to her, the room was full. :-)

I highly recommend this conference which is put on every two years. Lisa Gardner gave a great workshop on how to focus in on your career and figure out what you're doing. Jennie Cruisie and Bob Mayer did a 2-hour workshop on how to start a novel--finding characters and conflicts and story. Debbie Macomber was the keynote speaker--she is so funny!

Now I'm trying to clear my head and get back to work. I have revisions due to Berkley, need to do a tiny edit on the vampire novella, and of course write another book! (or two).

I WAS such an awesome conference! Thanks for going on my Shoe Quest. I finally found some bronze shoes--had to order them after trying on one in black to see if it fit. Then took your advice and ordered my navy shoes from Naturalizer. Plain, boring, pumps, but they were a 10W. They had some cute ones, but were probably too narrow at just M's. So I have 3 pairs of shoes on their way to me! :D Thanks for lunch and for going on my Shoe Quest!

Hey, I'm always up for a Shoe Quest! Glad you found something. My suggestion that you change your entire wardrobe again probably wasn't very practical. :-) It was fun! And kept me from having to do those revisions.
