Conference season is right around the corner and you’ll see scads of highbrow articles on what to do, what to see, who to talk to, and what not to do. So, how am I any different? What can I possibly tell you?
I only two RWA Chapter conferences under my belt, put on by the New Jersey Romance Chapter, and they were simply amazing. I can’t imagine the major RWA conference topping them. Someday, I’ll make it to the annual RWA Conference and I’m sure I’ll be amazed there.
But for now, here’s my FIVE THINGS TO KNOW about your First Writer’s Conference:
Not that you should be so laid back you’re unprofessional in your presentation. Just remember that the other woman across the table is a human being and is here to listen to you and wants to hear about YOU, your book, and why you’ve written it. Do give her your best, be courteous, and be friendly. But don’t get yourself so worked up you can’t sleep the night before or you lose your lunch over it!
