Conference Countdown–T-minus 44 hours

Tuesday, September 18, 2007

In less than two days, the 2007 ACFW National Conference officially begins with the early-bird sessions. I’m not attending those, but I know many people are.

Today, I’m studying up on the editors/houses I’ve requested appointments with–reviewing their profiles on the ACFW site as well as the houses’ websites to ensure I know exactly what each one is looking for so that I can tailor my pitches to show how my novels fit their needs.

I may not get a chance to blog tomorrow–I’ll be leaving around one-thirty to go to the hotel to check in. So here’s what I’m most looking forward to at this year’s conference:

  • Meeting my crit partners face to face
  • Seeing old friends
  • Meeting new online buddies for the first time
  • The fellowship and worship
  • Having a sit-down with my agent
  • Being surrounded by other writers for four days
  • Learning more writing craft stuff to blog about!

    Tailoring pitches is a great idea! I’m so slammed right now with last minute stuff to keep the family floating that I’m feeling the crunch. But that’s something worth holding the train for.

    I meant to say AFLOAT. My loved ones aren’t really hovering overhead.

    Seventeen Hours! I can’t believe it! And hopefully eight of those will be spent asleep. (I’m not counting on it though, cuz I’m so excited!) I’m all packed and ready. Woohoo!
