LDS Storymakers is This Week!!

by James Duckett

On Thursday morning I'll be driving up to Provo to attend the 2012 LDS Storymakers Conference. I've been blogging, tweeting, and even Facebooking (is that a word?) about it all year. I can't believe it is less than a week away.
I've decided to make the most of it! I'm not holding back at all as I'd hate to utter the phrase, "I wish I had taken advantage of..." after the conference. I'm paying a little extra to stay at the hotel, which will allow me to make trips to the room between classes if I need anything. Last year I basically lived out of my truck and commuted to cheaper living quarters, but that doesn't fulfill all my needs. So when I say I'll be living at the conference, I mean it.

I also paid a little bit to take advantage of extra opportunities. I'll be at the boot camp the day before the conference. I also paid for the Whitney Award Gala. I'm looking forward to the Authors Incognito Mix-n-Mingle. My schedule is FULL, FULL, FULL! I look forward to a good night's sleep Saturday night before I drive back home. I'm going to need it.

There is a lot of information being shared at this conference. Between this and the notes I've taken at LTUE, I should have plenty to share on this blog for months to come.

I look forward to seeing you all there. Please take some time and say hello if you see me. I'm terrible with names and faces, so please don't take it personally if I have to glance at your name badge before I get excited to see you.

Just a heads up: I don't look much like my pictures anymore. I've grown out my hair. So if you see a hippy walking around then it might be me!

You've grown out your hair? What happened to that haircut you were supposed to get for your goals a couple of months ago?
I'll be there Saturday but that is currently all I can get sitters for. But it'll be fun :)

I got a haircut then (Beginning of March-a-thon) and last weekend. It is still longer than at LTUE.

See you on Saturday!!

Wow. Your hair? How does your mayor and council take to that? Of course, they're a bit more liberal down in St. George, aren't they? ;)
