Well, I’ve packed my professional-yet-hip clothing. Have gathered my granola bars, my PB & J, my saltine crackers. My bag small enough to cart around all day yet large enough to fit 20 literary magazines into. I’ve printed my schedule and highlighted relevant booths at the book fair. So of course I’m still not ready, but probably as ready as I can be.

Perhaps the thing I’m most excited for is VIDA Prom. Speaking of which, gotta dig my Hadley Hemingway dress out of storage.
