Yesterday, I packed for my trip to RT Book Lovers convention. This will be my first time participating, and I’ve heard it’s a lot of fun and quite a bit different from writer conferences. How different? Not sure, but I do know with it being geared toward the reader/author relationship, high jinx will ensue. We writers can be introverts but when you get a bunch of us together, we can go wild. Add in a dose of readers’ admiration, we’ll go insane!
Anyway, as I packed, I kept telling myself that I didn’t need six pair of black pants or four sweaters (the temp should be in the 40s). I use to pack a regular sized suitcase for a full week business trip and that included makeup and a couple pair of shoes. But now days, I’m thinking about a third suitcase. Sad. Just plain sad.
What about you? Are you a three suitcase kind of person or can you get everything in one for a week’s stay? If you can do it with one suitcase, tell us your secret.
