Day 9 #blogflash2012 - Journey

I am preparing for a trip. Tomorrow I will fly not home, but to Calgary. It's not far from home and it's somewhere I have been countless times. However, this time, I will be arriving for When Words Collide, where I will present myself as an author. I can't begin to tell you how excited I am to be on panels like: Sex in fiction, Flash fiction, and Dos and Donts of Self-promotion. I can't tell you how excited I am to be on a panel at all. I was floored when Randy asked me at the Surrey International Writers Conference last October. I didn't quite believe him. But here I am, on my way. I feel like the hero starting her journey. I know it's going to be different and that I'm going to change. I won't come back the same way I left. I expect, like most heroes, I'll be better for it!
