I can officially announce that I'm going to the RWA annual conference in Orlando!
*does a happy really fast paced waltz dance around the coffee table*
My writing gals and I discussed it, but it didn't seem like anyone could realistically attend.
So, I pitched how much fun we'd have at the resort's pools, or eating sundaes at Ghiradelli's at Downtown Disney. I pointed out that we haven't had a get-together with all 4 of us since SCBWI in January. Then, I worked some Disney magic and got us a free room. (Thanks Mom and Dad, and Disney Vacation Club!)
That sold them. It's a go.
For the record: I don't write straight up romance. My stories always have some sort of love story going on but they'd never be shelved in the Romance section. So what. RWA is a stellar organization and has tons of stuff to teach me.
I love writers conferences. SCBWI, Pikes Peak, they have all been fabulous, but this RWA one is at Disney World! My own backyard. Where I spend many of my weekends! Seriously, if you're attending and need insider tips about where to go, how to get there, or anything else Disney related, come find me. I won't lead you wrong.
But besides the Disney aspect of this conference, RWA has an AMAZING line up of workshops, authors, agents, editors, and events. Seriously, I looked at the list of attending agents and editors and lost count of how many superstars will be there. It's madness. Fun, exciting, I-wish-it-was-July-28th-already kind of madness.
WHO ELSE IS ATTENDING?
We'll have to plan a blogger friend meet up. I mean, where else can you meet me, Natalie Bahm, Megan Rebekah, and Marie Devers, all in one place? Oh! And the fabulous Roni Griffin will be there too! If you want to attend, there's still time to register, but they're filling up fast so hurry! Here's the website.
