If I can make it there, part III

THAT DOG seems to be feeling better...at the very least, she's empty! Steve will be taking over on doggie care tomorrow, as I'm catching the earliest train imaginable to NYC for the Backspace Writer's Conference. I am SO excited about this event. I'll be on a memoir panel with two amazing authors, John Elder Robison and Gail Konop Baker, and my spectacular agent, Elisabeth Weed

Elisabeth is moderating the panel and has promised me easy, straightforward questions (unlike the last panel I was on, where the moderator kicked things off with a question about my, um...intimate life choices. There were children in the front row. I floundered, trying to come up with some sort of cogent yet subtle answer, then threw myself under the table in shame. I emerged from that experience a little gun-shy.)

If you're in the city, come say hello! If you don't see me right away, it means Elisabeth faked me out. Look under the table...

How exciting. I'm sure you'll be witty and charming--the perfect poster girl for your book. Have fun!

Ugh! I am going to be in NYC next week...not this week. :( But I hope that the panel goes well and that it is a learning experience--not a scarring experience!

It was great seeing you all there.

Woof!

And as a God-Fearing blogger, you should know that the devil has gotten into your word verification.

Today's word: Evil-B

I offered Evil-C, and it gave a different choice.

Better get your fiddle ready, and whup them demons, as we say down south.

Woof!
