Getting Ready for the Tempe Desert Nights Rising Stars Writer's Conference

In just a few days I will be attending the Desert Nights Rising Stars Writer's Conference in Tempe, Arizona.  I am both excited and apprehensive.  It will be quite an adventure and one I have anticipated since my early registration back in October.  I have never attended a writers conference and am taking advantage of this local opportunity since I will not be in New York any time soon (the mecca for all things "writerly").  I am a novice in the writing world and will be searching out others in my position as well as those already published for guidance.  Intimidating!!!  Wow, but inspired and willing to learn!!

So, I am hopeful, intrigued, open and encouraged (and yes, just a little intimidated...).  I will be blogging about my experience and anyone with their own personal experience at their first conference, feel free to share! 

Thursday, March 3, is the registration and welcome banquet.  We lead in to full days on Friday and Saturday, then a half day on Sunday.

Hi there! Thanks for joining in on my blog hop over at literary legs today, and giving me a chance to check out your blog! I too have never been to a writer's conference, but would love to go to one sometime. You'll have to blog about all the great things you come away with when you're back!

About Me

I figured things out late in life, like what I wanted to do, getting married (age 30), having kids, (36 and 38) and changing degrees about 3 times. Now as a cop of 19 years and in my mid 40's, I am finally figuring out some things. My first career or dream of becoming a writer is playing more in my head and daily life than ever. I love it. Thus the blog. It is all mine. I also love being a mother. They are all ours. I love my husband and as a cop, wow.. have I seen some things. Street degree. I got it. Let us learn together. I also am on She Writes.
