There is the coolest Science Fiction and Fantasy symposium happening in Orem, UT on Feb 9-11, 2012.  You can read about it HERE.

Last year I went and took my daughter and husband with me.  This year it seems I am on my own, except perhaps the last day if my husband chooses to take the day off and go.  Which I hope he does, because as of late he has become so supportive and I LOVE discussing writing with him.  I think the most romantic thing he has ever done was take me to dinner and discuss SOA – plot, setting, characters and all – in a vibrant, animated way.  Like he cared as much as I did.

It really gets old plodding along with the same idea although you know you’ll never drop it.  I appreciated the fresh point of view.  Sometimes I envy Richard Paul Evans (he’s going to be there Saturday, btw) when he mentions his wife has read his manuscript.  I look forward to finishing so I can have that experience too.

Anyhow, if you’re going, please look for me.  I’d even be thrilled if you asked me to lunch.  I will say yes…

Is that a shameless plug?  We all have to eat, right?  😉
