I sat down last night to redesign my business cards. I don't have a fancy program or template, but I think they turned out pretty well. They now reflect my new focus on World War II romantic suspense fiction. They probably look homemade, but hey, that's ok. I don't have the money to spend on fancy business cards and the free ones (like Vistaprint) wouldn't work for what I had in mind.
I was tickled to see yesterday's post appear on Blogging National and it's been great fun to go through everyone's blogs to see how they're preparing for conference. Some are first-timers, like me, and others have been there numerous times before.
I've decided that I'm going to keep an open mind about Atlanta. I have one goal - to relax and have fun. (Or is that two goals? *grin*) Most writers are introverts and I confess that I tend to lean more that way. But I'm determined to introduce my extroverted personality to everyone at Atlanta. Of course, that doesn't mean I'm going to go buck wild! Rather, it's more the friendly, outgoing personality that I used to have back in college when I was young and much less inhibited.
On my intinerary for sightseeing is the Margaret Mitchell House and Anne Frank in the World Exhibit. I might do both on the Sunday after the conference or one on Tuesday when I fly in (I get to Atlanta at 11 a.m.) and one on Sunday.
I hope I do ok in the heat - I am not a heat person. I'm just going to remind myself that I'm on vacation and that I'm having fun! :-)

Yesterday I woke up in a fantastic mood. I felt pretty good (you never feel terrific when you have chronic illnesses) and I couldn't wai...
