I have returned from the craziness that is the RWA national conference, unpacked my bags, and sorted through e-mails. And slept. Quite a bit. Even lacking a long flight or jet lag this year, I came back worn out. Five full days of smiling, talking, schmoozing in general, plus high heels and cocktails and late nights, can take it out of you.
It was a good conference. I always enjoy catching up with clients and editors alike, plus seeing all those wonderful writers who are not my clients but have become friends over the years as we bump into each other at event after event. Whatever else they do regarding encouraging writers in their careers, RWA fosters a sense of community, and it’s always fun to submerge oneself in that for a few days.
Right now I have some major work reading on my plate, but I’ll be back later in the week with more on the conference, specifically regarding what seemed to be the main theme, at least for me. In the meantime, go get some writing done! If you’re looking for a little push, a new session of Camp Nanowrimo starts tomorrow.
