I can’t say enough about RWA 2011. Everything about my four days there was wonderful – from the workshops to the people.
The high points of the conference for me were Sherrilyn Kenyon’s keynote address and Candace Haven’s Fast First Draft workshop. Both were inspiring. Both women have a new fan- me!
And that’s what I needed. I needed time away from everything else to BE a Writer – to be with Other Writers. To be with people who understand what it’s like to wake up in the morning with your head so full of ideas you have to write them down – you have to get them out.
Writers need to be around other writers. We need the validation that we’re not nuts (well, maybe not totally). I’ve been missing my RWA Chapter meetings lately and RWA National was the perfect way for me to regain that connection.
