Bring on the weekend...

Am feeling like a kid counting down the sleeps till Christmas. I'm SOOOOOOOOOOOOO excited about this weekend's Romancing The West mini-conference and catching up with many of my writing buddies.

I'm heading to Perth - KID FREE - on Friday morning for some shopping and then I'll pick up my lovely writing friend Janette Radevski who's travelling from Sydney for the day! From there we're off to the hotel, where we'll meet up with Nikki Logan, Fiona Lowe and Fiona Palmer and head out to dinner at a near-by pub. I'm sure the food will be good but I just KNOW the writing talk will be fabulous!

Then Saturday promises to be a jam-packed awesome day of writing workshops!! I'm planning on going to sessions about 'Branding myself' (really looking forward to this one), Writing a fab first para and first chap and Tension - how to avoid that saggy middle!

Saturday night will be another dinner with even MORE writers.

And one of the best bits? TWO NIGHTS with no one waking me up to go to the toilet or because they need a drink - lol!

Promise to take pics (I'm usually hopeless at this) and update you on the day early next week!!
