I’d imagine I won’t be the only OCCer to blog on the Slice of Orange about how great the Romance Writers of America National Conference was last week! I, for one, had a wonderful time.

When I registered, the block of rooms in the conference hotel was already booked, so I found a hotel across the street. The Mosser Hotel room had charm but not a lot of space, but since I shared it with my husband things worked out just fine.

These days, most of what I do at an RWA conference involves networking and promotion, and I had a blast with both–not to mention all the parties I attended, including a couple at the OCC suite!

I also had fun making sure that my keychains, bookmarks and excerpts were available in the Goody Room as long as I was around. People must have liked them, since I always had to add more.

I admit I didn’t attend many workshops. I did go to the opening session of the PAN retreat and enjoyed the motivational speaker, and I also popped into some other workshops when I had time. That was one regret, since I know I missed some fine talks. And I also had to leave early, so I wasn’t around for the presentation of the Golden Heart and Rita awards.

I’m already making my plans to attend in Washington , D.C. , next year… and you?

    It’s May 2022. And it’s quite a month for me. I’m having two books published! They’re numbers 56 and 57, so I’ve been pretty fortunate in my writing.

    Do writers ever go on vacation? Physically, sure. Mentally? Probably not.

    Sounds as if you really did make the most of the conference, Shauna. I’m considering applying to do a workshop, too. That would be one, at least, that I would get to next year!

    It’s too bad you couldn’t fit in more workshops. The ones I went to were great.I hadn’t intended to go next year, but now I’m considering applying to do a workshop. I blogged about my experiences at http://shaunaroberts.blogspot.com.
