It's been a ~headdesky~y month and a half

Usually, where I work we get two weeks between the quarters, but this time around it's just one week. However, in that week, I am going to the Sirens conference in Washington, and am very enthusiastic and nervous.

It's my first real vacation since...ever.

I am also ecstatic about the prospect of getting some writing done, and meeting new people who share my love of writing and fairy tales.

On the other hand, it's one week that will be nonstop before I return to nonstop work, and I have some work things that need to be done before the week is over. So busy busy busy.

BUT. It wouldn't feel right not to document my enthusiasm (I can be rather deadpan, in person and in writing, so visible enthusiasm is a treat for those who know me), so I plan to post a few times while I'm there, or at least, one or two massive posts after I return.

I hope you are all enjoying the week. Happy writing, everybody.

Hi... I just discovered your blog. I am fourteen and wrote my first book... but it kinda feels dumb now that my writing has matured... i would love to talk to you and take advice...

Even if it feels dumb now, you probably learned a lot from doing it. And to complete one at 14 is a huge achievement; the trick now is to take what you learned about storytelling and writing and put it into a new story, or into editing the one you have. And to keep doing that with every story.
