2008 RWA Conference Spellbound on Southbank


I have just returned from the 2008 Romance Writers of Australia Conference in Melbourne and had an absolute blast.

One of the things that made the conference so special for me (aside from my bat wings) was being able to meet in person the fellow writers who had taken on the 50ks challenge in June. It was so good to be able to put faces to names, to have shared the challenge together and to find out where we were all going next in our writing. I was proud to be wearing my 50ks badge and I hope that everyone (and more) return to the challenge next year. (Don't forget Nanowrimo is only 2 months away).

Of course it was sad not to meet Rhian, Sandie, and Nat but I did drop into the Clayton's Conference a couple of times over the weekend and caught up with the mischief that was happening there. Who needs a real conference to have a ball, hey gals?

And I'm looking forward to catching up with Elaine's Mechanics of Sex Writing Workshop when I have some time to spare.

So fellow 50ks, I hope you all had a fantastic conference. I know I've come away with my head buzzing with information and also know that many of us came away with requests for partials or fulls. Please leave a comment and tell us about your conference experience.
