By the time you read this the Australian Romance Writers' conference will be into its second day, but I'm writing this at the beginning of the week as I'm heading to Christchurch tomorrow and onto Sydney on Wednesday. I love these conferences. I get to room with my closest writing friends, catch up with many more whom I only see once a year, and go to great workshops. Then there is the cocktail party, awards dinner and the Harlequin dinner.
So yes, I'm excited.
Today I've been ticking off my check list.
Passport - tick.
Airline tickets - Tick.
Lovecats raffle basket prize - tick.
Gadgets to keep in touch with the outside world - tick.
Clothes and shoes - oops.
Finally, clothes and shoes - tick.
But if only there was room for one more dress, oh, and those amazing shoes I've been looking for an opportunity to show off.
How did I managed two months away in Europe with one SMALL case and can't get everything I need for a week in a bigger one.
I usually travel light, but conferences bring the have-to-have out in me. Do you have this trouble for special occasions?
