Next week I'll be attending the RWA convention for the first time. Huge deal for me. While I have no problem striking up a cyber conversation, I'm in the dark when it comes to the art of mingling and networking in the real world.
I'm the person who'll sit at an empty table looking really interested in the drink I'm holding onto like it's the last drink on a desert planet.
This year, I'm going to try to let my inner extrovert come out. Okay, that sentence sounded a little weird didn't it? But I refuse to hit the delete button. Even thought my fingers are itching in protest.
The thing is, once I get over the frayed nerves when in a large group, I can talk a person's ear off. I'll try not to do that.
Although I'm nervous, I'm excited too. Books and more books to be had. Maybe I'll discover a new author. Maybe someone will discover me. One thing for sure. I'll remember this for a long time!
