Rutgers One-on-One Conference!

Today is a busy day! There’s laundry, grocery shopping, packing, cleaning, and blogging to be done!  Why so much stuff? Oh, you know, nothing too big…just flying out tomorrow to go to the Rutgers One-on-One conference!!!  Yay!

This is my first time going to Rutgers and I couldn’t be more excited and honored to have been accepted. This is the first time I have been accepted for anything based on my writing, so that alone has been a big confidence boost. I have only heard wonderful things about the conference from others who have gone before, which only makes me more excited!

Although it’s easy to get a little nervous going to something like this (there will be 80 editors and agents there—wha?!) I know that only positive things can come from attending. I’m going to get advice from knowledgeable professionals, meet fellow writers, be inspired to continue writing, and get a little vacation from normal life!  I also get to have a mini-writing/friendship retreat with my close friend Debbi, which I can’t wait for!

I’ll check back in after the conference to talk about everything I’ve learned.  YAY for writing conferences!
