Conference Weekend

I’m headed to the OWFI conference tomorrow.  It’s going to feel weird going, because I truly DON’T have a business reason to go.  I’m no longer looking for an agent and I don’t yet have a book to publicize. 

At least that’s what I was thinking.  At first.

Nah.  A writer can always learn more.  You never know when something will spark that next great idea.  Plus, it’s always great fun to hang out with other writers and some very good friends of mine will be there.  JA Jance is the keynote speaker and there’s a pretty impressive list of agents, editors and authors ready to share marketing info.

Wonder if I’ll pick up more without the pressure? 😉

Today, I’m listening to OK Computer by Radiohead.  Yeah, I’m one of the millions who fell hard for that CD.  In fact, I worried for a little while that my kids would have hearing issues after listening to me belt out this puppy in the car.  Over and over. 

And no matter which live version you watch on Youtube, Jonny Greenwood is always so damned focused. (Lead guitar with longish black hair.)

I like that. 😉


About Rinda Elliott

Writer.I love unusual stories and credit growing up in a family of curious life-lovers who moved all over the country. Books and movies full of fantasy, science fiction and romance kept us amused, especially in some of the stranger places. For years, I tried to separate my darker side with my humorous and romantic one. I published short fiction, but things really started happening when I gave in and mixed it up. When not lost in fiction, I love making wine, collecting music, gaming and spending time with my husband and two children. I’m represented by Miriam Kriss of the Irene Goodman Agency.

    I like “Creep.” I belt out that song every time I hear it.
