I have been looking forward to this conference. I've held the day in my schedule even before I didn't have all of the details. The only thing I knew was that it is put on my Jessica Morrell, a local author and editor whose workshops I've attended a couple of times at Willamette Writers Conferences. (She has another workshop I'm looking forward to being able to take someday when my schedule doesn't conflict with when it is scheduled; still keeping my eyes on when the next session for that editing workshop.) I also knew that Lidia Yuknavitch was the keynote speaker.
But that was all I knew.
I received the information today and - wow - I am going. Just waiting for the final registration instructions and how to pay and I will be there.

This looks so good that I know I made the right decision a couple of months ago to hold the date.
