The Annual LiLa Writer's Conference

Yeah, so we've heard rumors of some writer's conference going on this weekend in LA. Sounds totally lame if you asked me. I mean who wants to go to Los Angeles and meet all of their fabulous writer friends, listen to amazing publishing professionals discuss the industry and rub elbows with uber successful authors and editors? Sounds awful doesn't it?

Anyways, we figured we'd hold a writer's conference of our own over the next couple of days. I have no idea what this is going to entail, but there will definitely be Prosecco and Twizzlers involved.

Get excited.

Ummmmm.... I guess I am late to the party but those are my two favorite vises. Really. Not a little jealous am I. Have fun ladies. Mayhaps I will buy a bottle of prosecco and a package of twizzlers and sit on my front porch this evening. As a tribute.

Suzanne said...

Did I say vises? Funny. I meant vices. Either works, right? ;)

Dude, I'm in. But switch the Twizzlers to Red Vines. Please? There's nothing like a red vine. If I'm driving more than 30 miles, I buy a package. They make everything better.

Finally! A conference I can afford to attend. :D I guess I'll bring the Barq's rootbeer and pickle chips then. Does this have to be a "dry" conference? ;)

PSH I definitely choose to attend your conference over LA's. I bet yours is cooler and there is better food involved.

hey is the party just for the two of you? b/c you know-I live in this great town of yours too :):) And I know where to buy giant bags of twizzlers! Throw in some wine and I'm there!
but speaking of this town we live in and conferences- I did sign up for the SCBWI one coming here in Sept. -have you guys been to any of those?

Sounds cool! Love Twizzlers, especially the chocolate ones. Yum!

I'd love to attend but I got suckered in to that expensive one in L.A. minus the Twizzlers. Maybe I'll bring some prosecco with me though...

loretta said...

I'm in. Dove's Dark Chocolate for me, though.

Danyelle said...

Count me in! *twice* O:)

Tess said...

Will there be editors to follow and stalk? If so,I'm in!

storyqueen said...

Oh man, now I'm going to have to leave my own pity party and come to your conference...(sounds more fun than moping around).

Hmmmm.....Twizzlers? Prosecco? Do you suck the prosecco through the twizzler? I'm confused.

I'm there.

Sadly, I can provide some insight to Shelley's question. Prosecco isn't good through Twizzlers. Granted, I drank a margarita through a Twizzler, but I'm sure the effect is the same. You will need Juvaderm from the sucking and the Twizzler tastes like wax when you finally bite into it.

I'm sad that I can share this tidbit.

OMG, who the hell would wanna go to LA for some stupidly awesome writers' conference?? Lame-o.

Jeannie Lin said...

Is it possible to sip Prosecco through a Twizzler straw?

I wish writer's conferences weren't so expensive! We're starving artists, you know?

PurpleClover said...

LMAO. Umm...I missed that it was Prosecco. For some reason I read it as prosciutto or something. I was like, hey whatever works for you. I like my prosciutto with asparagus or fresh slices of mozzerela but whatever floats your boat.

So I guess it's not a "dry" conference after all. I'm sooo there. ;)

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
