RWA National Conference Already on my Mind

It's crazy, but I find myself thinking about the RWA National Conference several times a day. And it's still something like 12 weeks away! I know from going last year that this is not a make or break event when it comes to my career, but I also know that it can open up doors that might be harder to open elsewhere. That's why I have my sights firmly set on getting this novel completed by the time I go.

7,000 words a week should do it. And still give me time to revise and polish the manuscript before I go. I guess the reason I keep thinking about the conference is because I've set a writing goal that directly corresponds to when I leave for Nashville. I know I can meet this goal, it's just going to take keeping my eye on the prize. And if I do? It will be the first time in a very long time that I've really met my goals head-on and been prepared ahead of time. That may not sound like a big deal to some of you, but for me, it's a huge deal. Epic, really.

Basically, I'm just plain excited about the conference. I check the updated agent/editor list every few days. I've looked through the workshop descriptions. I've even looked over the hotel restaurant menus for goodness sake. I'm determined to make the most of my time there this year, and I really feel that amazing things are just around the corner. Now, I just need to take that positive energy and use it to reach my goals.
