|My son Mike, grandson Ryan, and daughter-in-law Tins at Ryan's return to campus a month ago.|
The following weekend I'm flying to Atlanta to attend the Midnight and Magnolia Conference. Writers in all phases of their careers, agents, editors, and experts in the field of engaging readers will be there. I'll also get to meet my Critique Partner and I can't wait to hug her.
I've never attended a regional convention before. I have gone to one RWA convention in NYC--an experience I partially inserted into a book I soon hope to finish.
In attendance will also be a photographer who, for a fee, will take eight professional head shots.
For an additional fee, they will do your hair and make-up. But, alas, I am too cheap for the fru-frau. So cheap in fact that I've been using pictures my son (see above) took five years ago.
I don't photograph well. My eyes squint when I smile and as I've aged, the squinting is more pronounced. My double chin has dropped at disarming proportions as have my boobs. But we don't need to go there. The next time I post, I'll share the best of the head shots. I may have to keep using photos by Mike Shubert.
