Where to begin...

That's the question I've been thinking about for weeks now.

In less than three weeks, I will be getting on a plane, and heading out west for the Casual Blogger Conference. For MY conference, the one that I have poured my heart and soul into with the help of my two amazing business partners, Elisa and Julie.

For months, we've been planning every last detail. From the venue, to the entertainment, to the wording on the legal documents, each detail has been meticulously planned... except for that one part that I've been avoiding.

I will be speaking on a panel...

"Writing Through the Pain," it is called.

But I can't find the beginning. 

I know the culmination of the story. I know where it gets especially hard. I know the parts I hate. But the beginning...

I am lost for the beginning.

I have so much that I want to say.

So many small things that led to the end.

Not that it's really ended.

I mean, I have a CONCLUSION, but not an ending.

And they're really not one and the same...
