Since I'm not feeling especially 'wicked' today thought I'd try to gather my thoughts enough to talk about conventions and the chaos that comes along with it. Now let me state right off that I know plenty of ladies who thrive on chaos and handle task after task with an ease that makes me slack-jawed. You people are my heroes. I've always sucked rocks at multi-tasking so needless to say that getting ready for Ellora's Cave's upcoming Romanticon has my panties in a bunch. The closer it gets to September 29, the more freaked out I become so I reckon it's time that I start making some lists just to put order to my thoughts. This being said, I know that once I board the plane that'll take me to EC Wonderland, I'll release a pent-up breath to the strains of the Hallelujah Chorus and release enough tension to sink a battleship.
That day isn't TODAY.
What I have done: Booked the room I will share with Desiree Holt, bought plane tickets, arranged transportation from the airport to the hotel and back again. I have bought two new pairs of jeans and some comfy shoes, mailed off a gift bag which will be given to one lucky conference attendee. NOTE: Did this Texas-y cowboy gift bag with Desiree and oh my, we have lots of goodies in it.I have bought promotional items for the swag table which includes pens (pretty blue ones), bookmarks, postcards featuring my Panther Moon cover, and magnets. Mailed those off along with the gift bag so YAY ME! I have also ordered and received a couple of Trading Cards which I plan to carry around with me and hand out willy nilly to anyone who wants one.
Still need to do: Buy a couple of cute tees to wear with my jeans, go through clothes and decide what I will be packing and FINISH A BOOK. Maybe that doesn't sound like much and it probably really ISN'T but dang it...these undone things are getting on my last nerve. To be honest, finishing the book is tops on my list and once that is finished and sent off for editing, things will begin to fall into place.
So if you are attending Romanticon, what is left on your TO DO list?
