RWA 2010 Conference Musings

I've just returned home from the Romance Writers of America 2010 Conference in Orlando. It was an incredible experience! I met so many wonderful people and even geeked-out with quite a few of the SciFi/Fantasy lovers like me. I had a blast at the RWA Fantasy, Futuristic and Paranormal Writers' party and won first place in the Steampunk costume contest.
The guest speakers for the lucheons, Nora Roberts and Jayne Ann Krentz, were personable and entertaining. They both told hilarious and inspiring stories from more than three decades of writing. The best part of the conference, however, was simply getting to meet the other writers. Each and every RWA member, from the lowest newbie to the rich and famous, was sincerely welcoming. Even as a not-yet-published author, I felt validated and worthy. I will forever cherish the memories and friends I made.
