To Do or Not To Do

Posted by on August 4, 2015

Greetings fellow adventurers!

Wow, where has this summer gone! We’ve done school with the kids, my sister and her kids have come and gone, my hubby’s built a storage shed, Darkened Hope is off to the beta readers, and now Realm Makers!


Did I mention my hubby is amazing?

My hubby’s latest project has me scrambling to clean out our old storage and reorganize everything into the new one. ONE WEEK before I leave for my first writer’s conference. Oh, the junk we hold on to for thirteen years of marriage! Insanity.

And I have to prepare for Realm Makers!

I am so excited to finally meet many of the writerly peeps I’ve only interacted with online. I look forward to meeting many others who share my love for adventure in speculative fiction and the opportunity to meet industry professionals that I’ve followed for years. Eeep! So I would have liked to have been a bit more prepared. That said, I am taking Mike Duran’s suggestion to CHILL OUT and have fun. So I’m going through my list of things to do and deciding what I can do and what I will have to let go of as I have less than TWO DAYS to pack and get ready.

But hey! I have my costume! Priorities, right?

Back in May, I had so many ideas. I wanted to be soooo many characters, but time, energy, and cost helped to narrow the choices down. But maybe I’ll get a chance to be all of them someday. We shall see! Fun, fun!

So who do you think I will go as?

A. Black Widow
B. Twilight Sparkle
C. Hermione Granger
D. Zarina, the Pirate Fairy
E. Ayianna
F. Arwen

I will let you all know when I get back! Oh, and if you follow me on Instagram. I may or may not be posting pictures. Have a great rest of the week!

    Ooh, all of those sound fantastic. My guess is Zarina, the pirate fairy!

    Ooh, Ayianna! That would be so cool!! : D I have no clue who Zarina the pirate fairy is, but now I’m inspired to go and find out!

      Oh, I agree! And Zarina the pirate fairy is from the Tinker Bell movies. I have 4 year old daughter. 😉 (But those movies are awesome!)

I love hearing from you!
