I fly to San Antonio for RWA Nationals in six weeks!

This is pretty much me right now.

Our 2014 Golden Heart yahoo loop has been full of dresses and pin talk and name talk and a few awesome call stories. We've decided to call ourselves the Dreamweavers and we're finalizing out pin design now. The more I learn about these amazing women, the more excited I am to meet them.

I have a dress I can wear for the ceremony but I've debated borrowing a different one from a friend. I'll make my final decision closer to the date. I like to have wardrobe options, you see. Don't we all?

But, most important, I'm finishing a new story and I'll be preparing to pitch it at Nationals along with my GH finaling manuscript.

These past couple of months have been a whirlwind of excitement. Being a finalist in this contest has been an amazing ride.  There have been a lot of cool things going on and to keep myself grounded, I've been writing something new. I'm really excited about it and when I have more information, I'll post it here.  Or rather, on my books tab above.

In the meantime, the summer is beginning. I have two little boys and I'm looking forward to the weeks ahead full of sunshine and fun with them.

What are your plans for the summer, readers? Are you going to Nationals?  If so, leave me a note so we can meet up!


  1. Marnee,
    Congrats on the new story. It's always great to have other projects to offer as well. Great idea!
    I love the gif! Those are so fun, and it expresses most of us right now. Maybe not so much me. I'm more like, "Crap! Six weeks??? Are you KIDDING me???" lol.
    Yes, I'm going to Nationals, and I'm sure we won't need to arrange to meet. We'll probably all be together for the duration. Joined at the hip. Seven peas in a pod...Go Dauntless!
    I'm holding off on the dress situation until it gets even closer to the date. Because I live to procrastinate. And I'm an optimist about losing weight. But it never happens. Ever.
    Can't wait to finally meet you in person.

  2. Thanks! I'm really enjoying the new story. :)

    I love gifs too.

    You're right; I doubt we need to arrange a meeting. LOL WHoo hoo, Dauntless!!

    And losing weight is hard. Writing isn't exactly an active profession either. Now, if a bear chased me while I tried to type out my stories, that might help me lose weight. Because I'd probably only run if a bear was chasing me. But it would probably make writing difficult. Hard to focus and all that. :)

    Can't wait to see you in SA too!!
