Atlanta: Business Cards and Sightseeing

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! :-)


  1. Sounds like a great trip! I'm sure you can use the break.

  2. I hear you about the heat! That worries me. I plan to stay in air conditioning as much as possible!


  3. So many people make their own business cards these days, it doesn't bother most editors/agents. Just find nice card stock and they'll look great :-)

    Wish I could be with you at the Margaret Mitchell/Anne Frank exhibits.

  4. Sounds like you have plans to make this a great vacation!

  5. I can't wait to hear everyone's stories upon their return so I can live vicariously through you!

  6. I know you will have fun, relax and smile, you only live once

With this in mind, the most innovative fuel-saving tool in the automotive industry was conceptualized and created: the Tornado Fuel saver. An automotive air channeling tool that creates a swirling air motion, the Tornado Fuel Saver allows the air to move in a faster and more efficient way by whirling air around corners and bends. Hence, more fuel is saved. increase gas mileage...
