Two years ago I planned to go to a writing conference in Orlando. I registered for the conference, bought airline tickets, had a place to stay. I was SOOO excited because I'd get to meet my agent, Sara Megibow, for the first time AND I'd get to hang out with one of my best friends, Karen Hooper.
I was 6 months pregnant and healthy and doing great. And then I wasn't. I had some major complications and had to cancel my registration a week before the conference, get my plane tickets refunded, and tell my roommates I wouldn't be coming.
Now, two years later, I'm finally headed to the conference that got away, RWA (in Los Angeles this time). Karen and Sara will be there along with many other writer friends.
I'm SOOOO excited!
You probably know that RWA is short for Romance Writers of America, and if you've read this blog for a while you know that I'm not a romance writer. I write books for kids. So why would a children's writer go to RWA?
Short answer: because I've heard it's the best.
I've been to a couple other conferences. They were super fun and I learned a lot at each of them, but everyone I've talked to says RWA events are on a different level. I can't wait to see if they're right!
Is there a conference you'd love to attend? Is there one you've been to that you highly recommend?
