RWA National

August 6, 2014 by in category Pets, Romance & Lots of Suspense by Linda O. Johnston, Writing Conferences tagged as , , ,

RWA National was fun this year, as always.  I found myself quite busy and didn’t get to attend as many workshops as I’d have liked.  I did attend one in particular, though, since I was its moderator!  It was called Multiplicity Rocks: Writing Concurrently in Multiple Genres or Subgenres.

I spent a lot of time at book signings like the Literacy Signing and those held by my publishers, plus meals including a couple with some delightful Harlequin editors.  And parties, of course.
I did some sightseeing in San Antonio , too–mostly a river cruise and a visit to the Alamo .  Very enjoyable, if you ignored the high humidity and temperature.
I unfortunately didn’t stay to see the RITA Awards, which in retrospect I’m now sorry about.  You’re probably already aware of it, but our delightful member Laura Drake won the RITA for Best First Book!
How about you–were you there?  What did you do?  Did you enjoy it?

RWA National 2014?

November 6, 2013 by in category Pets, Romance & Lots of Suspense by Linda O. Johnston, Writing Conferences tagged as , ,
It’s been about a week now since I submitted a proposal for a panel for RWA National’s 2014 Conference in San Antonio, Texas.  Will it be accepted?  I certainly hope so.
The proposed topic?  It involves writing concurrently in multiple genres or subgenres. 
The fellow panelists I proposed include a delightful and successful agent (my agent!) plus a RITA finalist and a bestselling author.  Their credentials exceed mine–but then again, I’ve had a lot of books published so far, with more to come.  And recently I have found myself juggling them a lot among multiple genres.
So, my fingers are crossed that our panel is accepted.  Will I attend the 2014 conference if our panel isn’t accepted?  I hope to!
I realize I’m posting this when it’s now too late for you to come up with an idea and propose it.  Sorry!  The deadline was November 1, five days ago–and that’s why this is still on my mind.
How about you–are you attending the RWA National 2014 Conference?  Did you submit a panel proposal?
