The Tallahassee Writer's Association is having a conference from March 18th -20th, 2011.
I've never been to a conference, but I've always wanted to go. The biggest problem I find is having the money to do so. Even if the conference is free, I still have to pay for a hotel or motel, travel arrangements, etc. Yes, I live in Florida, and though we are not a very wide state, we are a very long state.
I live in the middle of this very long state and Tallahassee is very far north of me. A three to four hour drive if memory serves. Now I can't just drive up there and go to the conference and drive home. It's a few days long and sleeping in a car is not fun. These are the times I wish I had some sort of a better income so that I could go and get my write on with people in person.
Alas, I will have to settle for posting it, and hoping that someone brings me back detailed notes and juicy details on writing.
