Where I'll Be....



Yay! It's Write On Con Week!

I am so excited that some fabulous blogger pals have put this event together. Who would have thought they would have so much response! Over 1400 people registered to take part in the forums. WoW!

One of the reasons I really wanted to be a part of this is because I have never really been able to go to one of the Big Conferences. You know the ones....the ones that keep you glued to your laptop, wondering what the next crumb of amazingness to be posted on somebody's blog who is lucky enough to be there will be. It's not that I didn't want to go to one. It's more that the scheduling gods have been against me each year (sometimes they duked it out with the recession gods.....or the giant-looming-project gods). Either way, same result. No conference for Shelley.

But now......now I GET TO GO! And you do, too!

So, head on over starting tomorrow. I will make an appearance on Thursday afternoon at 3:30 (but I am not sure if that is Eastern Time or what. I'll keep you posted.)

Also, I think I'm going to be at Yellow Book Road in San Diego on Wednesday at 11:00 for storytime....knights and dragons welcome!


hrh

P.S. Thank you for all of the nice comments on my blog last week. The support of the blogging community is the absolute best thing about the internet. The best.

Kate-Thanks. My daughter took the new pictures just outside my house. I love black and white shots.

Matthew-That is the truth!

Jemi-I KNOW, right? I cannot believe the amount of thought everyone has put in. Amazing.

Lydia-See you in the forums!

Myrna-Me too! I'd love to see you and your kids at Yellow Book Road on Wednesday.

Carrie-You can sit next to me, if you promise to write little notes to me that make me laugh at the wrong times.

Sherrie-Stop it! You're making me feel all official and everything!

Tricia-I am thrilled to be a presenter. I can wait until tomorrow!

Margo Berendsen said...

That is so AWESOME your book got sold! At AUCTION, too. Amazing. You give us all hope.

Going over to WriteOnCon, the day has arrived! I loved your reference to the various gods keeping you away from big conferences.

You changed your profile picture. I like it!

I've been popping in at WriteOnCon in between everything else.

Here is the link to a post I did about the Muse Online Writers Conference which is in October and it is a week long!

I hope you'll check it out!

Margo-I am so excited about the conference, even though I keep getting kicked off the site...bummer. I haven't gotten to play in the forums at all :(

Susanne-Thanks for liking the new picture. I thought Noel did a great job of shooting it. I actually call the picture "Lucius Malfoy's not-so-evil-twin"

Laura Pauling said...

Looking forward to what you have to say at writeoncon!

Stephanie Faris said...

What is Write On Con? I've never heard of that!

I can finally visit the conference now, I've been working all day....

I saw your vlog on Writeoncon and must say that first, I love all your funny voices--you should do movie animation work! And second. THANK YOU for wearing that tiara. I loved it!
