Gray hair, really?!?

Preparing for the Silken Sands Writer’s Conference next month means that I have a lot of getting ready to do. I have to get my pitch perfected, read over my manuscript yet again, and decide what clothes I am taking with me (including a swimsuit *EEEK* due to the fact that it will be held at Pensacola Beach).

I was discussing going shopping for a new wardrobe with a friend of mine when she asks, “Are you going to get your hair dyed before then? I see a few grays.”

“What?!?” I exclaimed, rushing to the mirror. Sure enough, several strands of gray were poking through my brown locks. To those of you who are proud of your gray, I commend you. I, however, think that I am too young to show these signs of wisdom. If they had been the beautiful highlights of white that I see on some lovely women of age, I would not have been so concerned. These were sticking out, mockingly, from various places throughout my hair.

As if I didn’t have enough on my mind to make me nervous! This is my first conference and being a novice is a nerve wracking experience. I have battled with myself over whether or not to even go to this event. Finally, I paid the fees and due to the economy was determined not to let the money go to waste. Now, that being said, I rushed to my phone and made an appointment with my favorite stylist. Whew, no gray will be seen after today.

Now I only have the minor worries of my pitch being perfected, my manuscript edited, and my wardrobe professional yet still show my individual style. No worries, right? *tear*

Any suggestions to calm my nerves would be greatly appreciated.
