2015 RWA National Conference in New York City

I’m still in New York City but we are flying home tomorrow. I’m pretty sure I’ll wish I saved this post for when I’ve had adequate sleep, but I’m going to throw it out there anyway because I’m feeling all happy and glowy about the conference and I want to share pictures! Also, I just ate that solid chocolate RITA statue from the awards ceremony for dinner tonight so I’m going to ride this sugar high until I crash.  Lucky, lucky you. Here’s the thing: RWA rocks.  I love the organization, I love the brilliant, talented authors who come to the conference to share their expertise, and I love the amazing people who I’ve been fortunate enough to meet along the way.

All the workshops were wonderful, but the absolute best part of this conference was getting to meet my 2015 Golden Heart sisters, the Dragonflies.  Over the past few months we formed invaluable friendships, and it was wonderful to finally meet each other in person.  I am continually in awe of how blessed I am to be a part of this powerful, talented, inspiring group of women.  The conference flew by and I only wish I had more time to spend with them.  This is the biggest reason I’ll be looking forward to the 2016 RWA National Conference in San Diego next year.  I hope to see everyone there again, and I hope to meet those who were unable to attend this year!


2013 National RWA Conference in Atlanta

Well, the whirlwind week is over and I’m on the plane heading home to Seattle.  I feel happy, exhausted, elated, and most importantly, inspired to start my next book.  I can’t say enough wonderful things about my experience this year as a 2013 Golden Heart finalist.  I met many new people, pitched to agents and editors, and learned a lot about the publishing industry. Since I’m running on fumes at this point, I thought I would just post some photos and hope that they tell the story better than my jumbled words.  Let’s just say, I am happy I got to go to the ball, and I’m now ready to kick off my shoes and get back to work!
