My Hoped-For Conference by Vivienne Lynge

Hello folks!  I’m still in Hot-Lanta wrapping up the 2013 RWA National conference.  But earlier this week (while I ignored packing!) I wrote up a quick list of things I’d like to accomplish at the conference.

1 – Meet new people.  A bunch of my CT writer friends are going to RWA too, so I will have to go out of my way to not socialize solely with folks I know and meet new people.

2 – Meet a couple of Author-heroes.  Jude Deveraux is doing a workshop that I MUST go to so that’s one Author-hero.  I’ll be bringing my old copy of Lost Lady, the first romance I ever read and working up the courage to ask for a signature.  I think Theresa Mederios is supposed to be there as well as Jo Beverly, Robyn Carr, Heather Graham, Sabrina Jefferies, and a ton of others.

3 – Learn some new marketing ideas.  Marketing, marketing, marketing.  Like laundry, it’s a never ending job.

4 – Take some fun workshops.  There are so many, I’m sure I’ll be able to check this one off.

5 – Go to the RITA awards.  The RITA is the romance world equivalent of the Oscars.  It may be the closest I ever get to going to the Oscars.  My cocktail attire is prepared.

I’ll let you all know how it went next Saturday.
