After weeks of pre-flight jitters, I've finally arrived safely here in Austin. I loathe flying, so even though I planned this trip a year ago, it wasn't any easier getting on board the plane.
I'm staying with my step-sister and her family for another day, then tomorrow I'm meeting up with Rhonda Penders, editor-in-chief of The Wild Rose Press, and she'll drive me down to the dude ranch outside of Bandera. We're spending the weekend at a writer's retreat there, and I get to meet my own editor so I'm really excited. She's promised to save me a trail ride, too.
We plan to visit a gun range and have a few writing workshops, but basically the weekend is about networking and getting in some quality writing time. Yay! Then on Sunday I'm leaving for L.A., where my DH and weasels will be waiting for me in Anaheim to spend the week at Disneyland. Not much writing time there, so I'd best get the lion's share done this weekend.
If they have Internet access out at the ranch I hope to post some entries on my blog, so if you're interested come by and see what's going on.
Have a great weekend!
