I didn’t go to Washington, D.C. for RWA’s national conference. I thought about it, but scheduled a vacation, some necessary dental work and doctor’s appointments for my summer off instead, so there went any discretionary $. (New glasses! I’m excited! I can actually see the computer screen now…who knows how that may positively affect my writing?*g*) I was going to have carpal tunnel surgery too, but now that I have to finish two books, I’d better have two free hands. I know I’m missing out on all sorts of fun networking, so I’ve sulked and sweat over the keyboard, trying hard not to check out live-blogging and Tweeting.
I challenged myself to kind of avoid the Internet for the duration of the conference, with the exception of e-mails from Tiff, who was there, and Kris and Ely, who were not. My goal was to have 40,000 words on Any Wicked Thing by the end of Sunday, July 19. I flunked the anti-Internet test, and as of today I’ve only got 35,000 words. Hmm.
Next year, however, I plan to be in Nashville. Yee-haw!
If you went to D.C., stop in and let me know how much fun you had so I can gnash my teeth. If you did not, what was your goal this week? What are you looking forward to?
Smug Update: As of July 19 at 7:38 PM, I have 40,138 words on AWT. Yay!
