There’s a list I check in the fall. It’s a bit like Santa’s run up to his big day.

But my list goes like this:

Register for James River Writer’s Conference                            check!
Register for Pre-conference workshop                                          check!

Prepare & pack all workshop materials                                         check!
Research agent/editor for pitch session                                       check!

Look up conference and workshop locations; plan route          check!
Like Santa, I check it twice and pack up the night before. I know I’ll be more relaxed and have a better experience at the workshop and conference if I’m well prepared.

Have you completed YOUR checklist? Only five more days to Christmas, I mean the 2014 James River Writers’ Fall Conference!
