For the past couple years, I’ve wanted to attend an annual writers conference in Austin, Texas. Each year, there was always a reason not to attend (work schedules, finances, not having my third novel completed).
I gave myself excuses not to attend.
This year, instead of excuses, I’ve given myself a deadline.
I just registered for the 2010 Writers’ League of Texas Agents Conference.
My goal is to have the fourth and final rewrite of the current novel ready to pitch and to enjoy a long weekend in Austin next June.
(If anybody’s attended the conference, I’m interested in hearing what you thought about it.)
