Too many conferences.... too little time

Okay, too little money, too...

Eileen Cook, whose novel, IN THE STARS, hits shelves in February 2007, just told me about a great conference today, the Surrey International Writers Conference. (Surrey's just outside Vancouver.)

What a great sounding conference. And I like to mix things up with some non-RWA events. Interesting to actually have male writers around, not to mention writers of other genres. Since I'm not writing romance right now, it's nice to attend workshops that aren't so focussed on the genre.

Hmmmmm... It's a lot of money. Hmmmmm... I already committed to the New Jersey Romance Writers conference that same month for no good reason except that my friends are going. Hmmmm... I made a rule that I wouldn't go to any more conferences unless I was either a speaker or had a book to promote.

Well, it was more of a guideline really...
