So the 2013 UtopYA writer/reader conference was held recently in Nashville, TN and I went down as one of the exhibitors.
Swag was passed, books were sold, Swedish Fish were consumed, workshops were attended, and then, in the blink of an eye, it was over. Where did the time go?
Then, I packed up and prepared to head back to Maine. My flight was going to be getting in at midnight, and I had a graduate class the next morning at 8 am. Being smart, I booked a hotel next to the airport so I could just crash and go to class. It was a good plan. Except, when it decided to rain in NY, where my connecting flight was. My flight into NY was delayed, which meant my connecting flight into Maine was not gonna get me home. I had to stay another night (using the money I had made at UtopYa—oh irony) only to go back to the airport at 5:00 am to find out that those flights were delayed as well. Long story short, too late, I didn’t get home until 9:00pm the following night. Oh, and I threw my back out in the process. Walking through an airport with a bad back…not a great plan.
So today, I write this, broke, broken, and exhausted. But you can bet your bottom dollar I’ll be going again next year. (I’ve already got my ticket!)
