For Goodness Sakes, It's My Turn

I didn't really forget this was my day to blog. I have it on my calendar, but for some reason I thought I'd already done it and posted it to appear today. Obviously that's not what happened.

So, here I am, late and apologetic.

Because I haven't planned, I have no idea what to write about. I've been really busy lately, planning for the Public Safety Writers Association conference which I'm leaving for tomorrow. I'm the program chairman so I'm excited and a tad nervous.

PSWA's conferences have been small, partly due to the fact that it had to be reorganized for reasons I don't need to go into. Last year we had 15 people in attendance. I can assure everyone that the small number made absolutely no difference, we had great speakers and a tremendous amount of fun. We've doubled the number plus three this year. Our speakers are fantastic, everyone who wanted to is on a panel. People are coming from as far away as New York and Florida. The good thing about Las Vegas where the conference is held, it's easy for everyone to get there and airfares are reasonable.

A plus for me is my sis lives in Vegas as does her entire family--four kids, a bunch of grandkids and greats. We'll spend our first evening and night and morning with her, then onto the conference. Oh did I tell you, I also do the registration, so I have to arrive at the hotel fairly early.

Before I leave, I hope to add some to my w-i-p, which is another Rocky Bluff P.D. crime novel. I'm at the most exciting part, so it's fun writing except I have to make myself slow down. It's in my head and I can't wait to put it into the computer.

Anyway, that's what distracted me from doing my blog as I was supposed to.

  1. Well, heck. Give yourself a break! You sound pretty busy as it is without worrying about blogging, too. We would've been happy if you just said something like "I'm off to the Public Safety Writers Association conference in Las Vegas (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) and will tell you all about it when I get back." You will tell us all about it when you get back, right? :-)

  2. Oh, I will definitely tell you all about the conference when I get back. I suspect I'll have enough fodder for lots of blogs.
