As much as I love going to writing conferences and the like, keeping track of my stuff makes me nuts.
√Folder or other handouts and give-aways
√Cough drops/hard candy
Add to this the lunch I have to carry to wherever I’m going to sit and eat and I just want to plop down on the floor.
Instead, I’ve knitted myself an event purse. Larger than anything I would carry normally, it eliminates having to carry a purse and a back pack or briefcase. You can see how huge it is — holding notebooks, chocolate and someone’s stuffed animals.
And I got the lining in just in time. Today I’m off to the Missouri SCBWI Writer’s Retreat with Cheryl Klein. Hurray!!
See you Monday with news from the retreat.
