Breathing Deep

I'm so excited I can hardly stand myself!

In just a few short weeks, I'll be able to meet my favorite author, Vince Flynn at the Savannah Book Festival. This is big stuff, people. Big STUFF.

*deep breath*

*deep breath*

*deep breath*

I'm not sure I'll be able to utter a single syllable to him. Authors are better than movie stars.

Way better.

I wonder what I should wear.

I wonder what I should say.

I wonder what he'll be like in person.

*deep breath*

*deep breath*

Good thing I've got a few weeks to worry about this!

Really? He is my brother's favorite author. How exciting for you!

hahahah! I'm not sure I get this hero worship of authors thing. I've read some other blogs where people have been to see their faves (Andi????)and although I empathise with your excitement, I just don't understand it :-)....Mind you, I'm not sure what would get me excited nowadays? I'm such a cynic!
PS: I will have to look up this author now.

I think there is nothing like seeing an author in person. I think it is because I love to read so much,as I know you do. I totally get this.
Yes, Arizaphale is right; I was beyond excited and nervous to meet PW, but I would be even more totally knocked out to see an author who's written my favorite fiction...I love it most when they read some of their work.
Take a deep breath, and enjoy it! Have someone take photos, if that's allowed; so you'll remember it later. If you are like me, you will blank out about the experience while it's happening. LOL
I, too, will have to look up this author. If not for me, certainly for my mom. Very interesting.
