On Charleston Time

Thursday I flew into South Carolina to attend the 2014 American Horse Publications Seminar in Charleston. It’s beautiful here! I’m somewhat familiar with the area because in 2012, my husband and I honeymooned on Pawley’s Island and visited Charleston for the day, but I’m so happy to have a chance to be able to spend more time here.

How can you not take a deep breath and relax with this scenery?

So far I’ve enjoyed dinner at Prohibition and lots of walking around downtown. I was able to be a guest at CrossFit Discovery Downtown Friday morning, where I did a drop-in workout and actually enjoyed being soaked with sweat even before the workout began (humidity is no joke here).

Sessions I’ve attended so far include “Tell Me A Story” and “Beyond Words” with Vanessa Gregory, a journalism professor and freelance writer, as well as “What’s a Platform, and How do I get one?” with Milt Toby and “The Art of Pitching” with a panel of magazine editors.

I’m looking forward to meeting and networking with many more equine publication editors and my fellow freelancers Saturday, as well as see the results from the awards, where I’ll keep my fingers crossed that I’ll hear my name!

Ironic that I find this place the day after my dad's 68th birthday!
