SCBWISF Asilomar

I'm heading to Asilomar in February to actually "talk" to people who write. In preparation for socializing I've begun leaving the safety of my writing environment and going to events that require face-to-face verbal exchanges.

Note to self: articulate slowly so as to give your brain sufficient time to "edit" or just listen and nod. Always look interesting and interested.:)

Part of good socializing often involves food--tiny pieces that have a tendency to slip through fingers or off plates.

Note to self: eat before event, avoid rumaki, avoid accidental spitting, especially when talking to an editor.

I'm sure there are more skills I should polish, but I'm taking this challenge on in manageable bytes.

More later.
