11 sleeps to go

July 26, 2009

…until we hit the road and head up to Byron Bay Writers Festival.

The cabin is booked…the tickets are in my hot little hand…

The netbook is ready.

We drive up early Thursday morning so that Sue & I can attend the Nuts & Bolts workshop while Jen goes off to the Performance Poetry workshop.

The Nuts & Bolts workshop looks bumper-filled with information on the publishing process:

Action: mark Thursday 6 August all-day seminar Nuts and bolts for special attention. This brings together top industry professional bodies such as the Australia Council for the Arts, the Australian Society of Authors, Varuna the Writers House, plus editors, agents and publishers to give the plain unadulterated truth about how the business side of writing operates, what opportunities exist and how a manuscript progresses from agent to publisher to bookstore. You’ll also learn how creative writing courses assist emerging writers and we’ve included a weighty session on the pros and cons of self- publishing. This is an enormous amount of expertise and knowledge in one room, on one day, and to add even more value, attendees will receive three months’ total access to The Australian Writer’s Marketplace online.

Doesn’t that sound great?

That will more than make up for missing out on this year’s Romance Writers of Australia conference. I’ll be doing the Clayton’s Conference instead. Though, I do not plan on missing next year’s RomAus conference.

And when I return home, I have a whole week off work to make use of the writing mojo and finish the editing of Beyond Happily Ever After.

And there’s the opening night party, and the fabulous company of my writer friends.

Speaking of Romaus…we have a brand spanking new blog & I am the blogmistess with a fabulous team of bloggers.  Should be fun.

And I got to see my sister & brother-in-law and their two gorgeous boys on the weekend. I even have photographic evidence right here:

Aren’t they so cute?
