Nationals Day Four or Agent Awareness Agony

Okay, enough is enough.

I've had it with falling asleep during early morning workshops. Tomorrow, I've decided I'm foregoing the Calloway #1 rule of 'Never turn down a free meal' and actually sleep-in. (Amazing, I know). However, after congregating last night at the eharlequin pajama party and then attending a private party hosted by some Kimani authors, I woke this morning a complete and undeniable bear, even Kay informed me that I was not a nice person early in the morning.

So, after a skimpy continental breakfast of which, I was informed by another writer that it was 'very continental' (What in the world does that mean?), I attended Gail Dayton's Writing Action Scenes. I knew while sitting there bristling when anyone spoke to me, that I needed to go back to bed in hopes I might wake-up with a better disposition for my agent appt.

After my nap, I did feel slightly guilty for not attending workshops, but that soon faded when I realized how wonderful and glossy my curls were after a 1 1/2 hrs in the hot rollers.(Oh, the vanity!)

My agent appt. was with Danielle Egan-Miller. It went well. She said my story intrigue her and she welcomed me to query her.

In celebration, Kay took me to the mall! I bought some souveneirs for my family and had a snack.

Tonight, we're having supper with several authors from SARA. So, that's it for now, I'm hungry.
