I'm back and sassy!

I love planning trips, I love going on them, I love writer's conferences, I love meeting new writers and old friend writers and I love getting inspired and psyched and laughing and talking and eating good food and buying great books and getting them autographed.

I do not like car break-downs, flat tires, getting colds, and trying to catch up after being gone.

I always feel behind for about a week or two afterwords, especially when a hundred things get thrown at you within 24 hours of walking in the front door.

But laundry is almost done - yay! Har, har. Why does our life revolve around laundry, for Pete's sake? In Europe, especially Eastern Europe, the average person owns 2-3 outfits and that's about it. Saves on closet space, laundry, soap, ironing, choosing what to wear every morning. They do own shoes. Lots of shoes. And no sneakers like us Americans.

But I digress.

For the next week I will regale you with pictures and tidbits from the
LDStorymakers conference at the Provo, Utah, Marriott hotel.

LDStorymakers is one of the BEST conferences I've ever been to. Seriously. 400+ people, tons of great writers, tons of great workshop, great agents, editors, filmmakers, screenwriters, books for sale, boot camp critiquing, First Chapters contest, personal meetings with agents/editors, inspiring panels, crazy and emotional videos, food, good company, silly pictures, great fun.

You gotta sign up early because it fills up about a month before the event. Seriously.

And I've been to some serious conferences over the last 10 years. Big ones. SCBWI Nationals are pretty darn good, too. Probably the best. LDStorymakers comes in second.

Here are a few pics to whet your appetite for the rest of the week.

Some of the halls and crowds . . .

The Author's Incognito Table. Significant. Stay Tuned.

Hmmm...incognito...interesting. Can't wait to here what that was about.

Okay, I mean to write "hear" and not "here". I promise I'm not that stupid. LoL.

LOL, Justine! All will soon be revealed . . . and don't miss today's post about Paranormal YA by Bree Despain - my notes from her workshop at the conference.
Have a great weekend!
