Ouch! What is that bright thing in the sky, hurting my eyes? The sun... Oh yeah.
Yard work is good for a break, if you wear sunglasses and remember to change out of your slippers.
But another kind of break--getting together with other writers--is also good. There's a neat writing conference coming up... Yes, I know I just attended a writing conference. I don't schedule these things.
So anyway, the Dogwood Writing Conference, held April 24 and 25, is sponsored by the Kentucky-Ohio-West Virginia (KYOWA) Chapter of RWA. The location is Greenbo Lake State Resort Park in Greenup County, KY. Should be beautiful! (I'm guessing the dogwoods will be in bloom.)
The keynote speaker is Tara Taylor Quinn, and there will be presentations by Maddie James, Mary Shortridge, Jennifer Johnson, Cathie Shaffer, and some county law enforcement officials. If you're interested, the details are here and the registration form is here.
I've only met a few of the KYOWA members in person, but these people even have fun on their yahoogroup. It should be a great time.
A great time of learning. Come on, this is serious stuff.
