This weekendâ€™s OCC meeting will be a prelude to the first SoCalRWA chaptersâ€™ joint conference, California Dreaminâ€™!As you probably know, it takes place on March 15-17 at the Doubletree Hotel in Santa Ana.
Iâ€™ve belonged to two of the four participating RWA chapters forever–OCC, of course, and also the Los Angeles Romance Authors, LARA.It should really be fun to get all four chapters together so their members can extol the individual virtues of each chapter while we all do what RWA does best: encourage romance writers to write!
Unfortunately, because of some deadline issues, I may not be there for the entire conference, but Iâ€™ll attend as much as I can.Iâ€™ll definitely be there on Sunday, at least.Thatâ€™s one good thing about a local conference.Thereâ€™s more flexibility in attendance.And Iâ€™m really looking forward to whatever Iâ€™m able to participate in.
In any event, if youâ€™re going, Iâ€™m sure youâ€™ll have lots of fun.
Oh, and by the way, Iâ€™m also attending the RWA National Conference this year, too, in Atlanta.Do you get the impression that Iâ€™m a conference lover?Well, youâ€™re right–and Iâ€™m not even mentioning (much) the mystery writersâ€™ conferences Iâ€™m attending this year.
