Today starts the writing workshop that I was supposed to attend in June. (There were two sessions and the first one didn't have enough attendees so I decided to go to the one this month.) I'm supposed to go with a writing idea, manuscript, or outline, pen and paper to take notes and a dictionary. I've got my dictionary. My Webster's New Pocket Dictionary. (I wasn't about to drag along the unabridged, although I was tempted to take the Dictionary of American Idioms or my M-W Compact Visual Dictionary.) I also have my dictionary app on my phone (very handy). I have my notebook and paper. That was probably the easiest thing to come up with. But then I got to the part where I needed to bring "an idea, manuscript or outline." Oh I have ideas. I've got about a hundred floating around inside my brain. I've even got a few manuscripts (should I take my laptop - I'm thinking maybe). I even have a printed manuscript (my proof from my NaNoWriMo book). I have my current Camp NaNoWriMo manuscript that I could work on (but I'd probably blush every time I had any "naughty bits" to read). Why does it have to be this confusing?
So I've decided to take my laptop, my proof, and my memory stick. I'll have pen and paper and probably a nervous stomach because I don't know what I'm walking into. Wish me luck. And I'll report back on Monday how the weekend goes.
