Romantic Time's Convention (RT) Part 1

So...the morning after my graduation, I got up at about 3:30 AM for my super duper early flight to Dallas.

This was one of those early morning flights when it still looks like it is nighttime when you board the plane. When you see the darkness below you, only penetrated by the bright airport and streetlights as you take off. When you're well into the flight and you get to see the sun rise over the countryside and the whole world turns pink. I may have not been very happy about getting up so early, but this picture I took really reminds me of how cool it was to see the world like that. Flying never gets old. 

You could see the Book Depository where Lee Harvey Oswald shot President Kennedy from my room. I loved the view. 
Anyway, waiting for me a the end of the flight was something pretty cool. It was a bit of a drive from DFW to the RT Convention hotel in Dallas traffic, but we eventually made it. This was my first time attending the RT convention where I actually stayed at the convention site, and it was pretty cool and pretty convenient. I barely left that building during the week that I was there!

This is on the elevator from my floor, 15. This hotel had 28 floors. Never go from floor 28 to floor 1 on the super speed glass elevator while looking down at the ground. It was not a wise choice. They should charge admission for this thing, because it might as well be a ride at an amusement park. Really. 

I got all signed in and settled in my hotel room, when my publisher, Stephanie texted me. She wanted me to come to her room for a surprise, and boy, was I surprised! She had a box full of print copies of Carried Home for me! How exciting, right????

Better quality picture with a better backdrop of Dallas!
After that, I met up with my completely awesome friend, Karen who is an aspiring writer. (Heads-up: she's totally awesome and totally motivated. I'm sure she will be a published author soon.) I spent most of the week at RT with Karen, and I miss her a lot already. :( 

So, I don't want to bore you with a super-long post, so that's all I'll share for today. Look for another post soon to tell you more about my adventures at RT!
