A little enthusiasm, please.

It takes a lot lately to get me wound up. A week off helps.

But what I am really getting excited about is this writers conference that I'm going to tomorrow at Harding in Searcy. "New York Times Bestselling Author" Jodi Thomas will be there and here's the schedule:

8:00 - 8:30 am Registration
8:30 - 8:45 am Welcome and Introductions
8:45 - 10:00 Exploring your Creativity
10:00 - 10:15 Break
10:15 - 11:30 Plotting Session: Finding Your Story
11:30 am - 1:00 pm Luncheon and Contest Awards Ceremony

1:00 - 2:30 Making Characters Come Alive

2:30 - 2:45 Break

2:45 - 4:00 Learning to Fall

I may be able to skip out early because I have a pretty good handle on falling...just fold like a limp noodle to avoid any permanent damage. That's probably not what she means, is it? I am not quite as pumped about the whole 8:00 part (because you know I have to be there early because I'm anxious about walking into the group and I don't need to add any "being late" anxiety on top of that. Plus, it's on a college campus so I'ma gonna be huffing and puffing to walk to whatever building it's in and I don't want to do that in a hurry. Today my legs don't seem to have gotten the message that they should be feeling better and if they don't get with the program tomorrow, I am going to be so ticked).

6:30 will be very early on a Saturday morning, but I have a week of unlimited napping time to look forward to. And I might be inspired to write a little.
