I’m freezing, and so happy about it. I can’t remember the last time I was really cold, but today one of the conference rooms was so frigid (even with the Princess coat on) I left the presentation early to scrape the frost off my ears and toes! It was fabulous.
Clouds have cleared from outside my window and I can see the mountains, but I fear my head is going to explode from all the information being thrown at me. I want to thank you all, lovely readers, for coming by and leaving comments – especially during this time when I am not doing any visiting of my own, due to the size of my brain. I can’t do one more thing!
Should any of you be writers in search of a writer’s conference, I am telling you this is the one to get your money’s worth – and that’s the word of a Scot! I listened, and made notes, and (yes jmb and Q), did my networking. Payoff: this evening over dinner a lovely young woman, who is attending the conference with her mum (my sort of girl!) gave me her card and the name of the person she suggested I contact to write yet another article about Curling in Morocco! How wonderful is that? I love it! I’m a ‘sports reporter’: a sports reporter who reports on Curling! Soon I shall be following the top Curling teams about the world to their competitions. Interviewing hunky Curling guys on the Ice (yippee, more cold stuff), and giving the inside call on who will win the next World Curling Cup. I already have the hat and the cigar…
The Princess Coat has been a big hit! I kept thinking of the stripper in the movie about Gypsy Rose Lee who said, “You gotta have a gimmick kid.” My conversation with the agent went very well this morning. It was a bit like speed dating, and I was nervous; but she was grand – and asked me to send her my ‘stuff’. Now, now.. not too excited, she may just have been being nice..
I have to rest my brain now; I am in fear of a sneaky migraine. You are all brilliant and wonderful, and I swear I can feel your support from wherever you are, all the way into Canada. That’s all pretty mushy for a Scot you know, so take it in that context.
