Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho, It’s off to conference I go…

Can you believe how fast the year is flying by? It seems only yesterday I was at the Romance Writers of Australia Conference in Melbourne, and now I’m getting ready to go to the 2012 conference on the Gold Coast!

Wow, what a year! In the time since last conference, I have written two more novels, a few short stories, worked with a freelance editor, continued revising a manuscript, found a fabulous critique partner, made new friends in the writing community, and learned so much more about the craft of writing. I am loving this journey, and each day I grow more passionate about the business of storytelling. I think about my stories when I wake up in the morning, and when I go to sleep at night. My mind is always creating stories and characters, and sometimes my fingers itch to write them down as quickly as possible!

I am looking forward to spending several days away at the RWA conference, engrossed in all things writing related. I’m looking forward to seeing friends, meeting new friends, and learning from other authors and publishing professionals. This year I’ll be helping out with one of the workshops, and also handling the facebook posts for RWA so we can keep non-attendees updated with the goings-on and awards at the conference (If you see me at the awards dinner frantically jabbing at my iphone, I’m not being rude, I’m just doing my job, okay?!).

The other thing I’m looking forward to is wearing a dress and heels. Yep, I don’t get out to fancy events much so this makes a nice change from the usual jeans I wear all the time! (Well, not all the time, I do wash them ;))

If you want to keep updated with the conference, follow the official tweets on twitter @RWAusConf2012 and the hashtag #RWaus12, and join the RWA facebook group and like the facebook page.

To see what happened at last year’s conference, read this post.

Okay, time to get organised… Conference 2012 – Bring It On!!

  1. Now I feel like a total slacker. Can’t wait to catch up next week.

  2. Can’t wait. I’ll be there too!

  3. Well said Juliet. I think there will be a few of us looking forward to wearing a dress, heels and lots of sparkly jewellery.

    Just to be extra annoying, I’ll come by and scream ‘go Juliet’ every time you are on FB. But it’s really moral support you know. πŸ™‚


  4. I’ll see you all there! …that might be good Effie, to keep me on my toes! πŸ™‚

  5. Am hanging out for next week! Can’t wait to catch up. x Rach!

  6. Have a great time, Juliet! πŸ˜€

  7. I hope you enjoy the conference.

  8. Can’t wait to catch up with you!

  9. Yay! It’s that time again!!! Am trying to jam enough clothes for a week into my suitcase while ensuring there’s plenty of room for books on the homeward journey πŸ™‚ Can’t wait to catch up again!
