Opportunity knocked just over 2 weeks ago and I almost didn't answer the door. Fortunately for me she keep knocking and I finally let her persuade me to go to a writers' conference in New Orleans. I finagled my way into a scholarship for everything but the gasoline to get there and food for one day. (I am not too proud to beg and grovel)
With the scholarship, my frugal nature, and a gift from a client, I was able to go. It was possible!
I enjoyed workshops, did a bit of sightseeing with a friend and fellow writer, and recharged my batteries.
I found some cute guys, too.
For those of you who were patient, you may request a free download of Haunting Refrain, Forever Love, or The Gift. You must ask by Friday.
