I have to stop going places without checking out my exact destination first. I haven’t done it for a while, but I headed out yesterday to go to a meeting of RWA (Romance Writers of America) Toronto Chapter and just assumed it would be at the same location as last month.
Nope. North York Library and Northern District Library – 2 different places. And, of course, it would be the day they were offering an editing course, so I really didn’t want to miss the session.
But by the time I figured out I was at the wrong location, it was five to nine. Luckily I had the correct address in my phone, but only the vaguest idea of the area. So I had to cab it. $24 later, I’m 15 minutes late, but luckily the instructor was just wrapping up the introduction.
And so glad I went. She was fantastic. Great speaker. Great information. Now I just have to apply it to my newest book.
And next month, I’ll be double checking the address BEFORE I leave home.
How was your weekend?
