Where was I Thursday morning, my usual blogging time? In Atlanta with luminaries of the romance writing community. Approximately 2000 other romance writers from household names to newbies, editors, agents and other industry professionals attended Romance Writers of America’s 33rd National Conference. The wealth of educational and networking opportunities made it a challenge to decide how to spend my time. Should I attend one of the 10+ workshops an hour, free publishers’ book signings or publisher spotlights? Not if they conflicted with agent and editor appointments. There were also assorted get-togethers and parties, and a lot of catching up with friends and making new ones.
