I just got back from the two-day “Let Your Imagination Take Flight” conference of the New England Chapter of the Romance Writers of America (NECRWA). What a wonderful event!
I went to the conference by myself, having met only a small handful of the attendees, and those, only just barely. And yet: I never felt alone. I’ve come away from this conference with a couple of new friends I really want to keep in touch with. And many new friendly faces I hope to see again.
Thirteen lucky people won a psychic reading. I was not one of them. But like every attendee, I was given spiritual reading card that contained the psychic advice most perfectly suited to me.
One of my characters occasionally hunts with wolves and comes back bloody and wild and shy. Sometimes I feel that way as a writer. Good card.
All in all, I had the best ol’ time, and I learned a lot.
I am so proud to be a member, even a fairly inactive one, of the NECRWA. It is such a friendly, supportive, generous, and hardworking group of writers! I’d like to acknowledge by name (sorry, I don’t have the links to your Web sites; I’ll update this post if I get them) the conference organizers: Kate George, Janet Campbell, Kimberley Dias, Pam Claughton, Mina Bourque, Kat Duncan, Tara Holt, and Valerie Harris. Kudos, ladies! Hats off to you!
More posts on this conference will follow.
