I’ve attended many RWA National Conferences over the years–but not the most recent one.
There were several reasons I didn’t get to Orlando this year. Did I miss it? Sure. Even so, I got to follow friends on social media sites and see who won awards and learn who I could have seen there had I attended. Some of those were fellow OCC members, whom I’ve been missing since I haven’t been able to attend local chapter meetings lately, either.
So now, here I am, blogging about something I didn’t see. And I know I couldn’t possibly learn about it all by checking out friends’ Facebook posts or even talking to or emailing friends who attended. What would I like to do about it?
I’m asking here for anyone who attended who reads this to tell me: What did I miss? What was your favorite thing about this year’s RWA National Conference?
And those of you who also missed it–have you ever gone to one of the RWA Nationals? Why did you choose to go that year, or others, but not this one? Do you attend your local chapter meetings? Other romance writing conferences? Writing conferences for other genres?
Okay, enough questions–maybe. Next year’s RWA National will be in Denver. Will I be there? Too early to tell, but I hope so!
