I’m a bit late posting today because I’m in San Diego for #RWA16, along with a whole bunch of writer friends, business professionals and publishers.
Normally, I’m inside the conference hotel for the entire time–unless we’re in NYC where we splurge on Broadway musicals. But this is beautiful, amazing, inviting San Diego with its perfect weather, blue skies, bustling harbor and gorgeous skyline. If I’m not attending some interesting workshop or eating–the food!!!–I’m sitting on my 20th floor balcony gazing at the view.
Parked out back you’ll find a few yachts. I’m going to have to sell an awful lot of books to afford one of these.
But the best part of any conference is re-connecting with old friends, like Jeannie Watt and Roz Fox
And yesterday at the luncheon we were treated to an insightful and moving keynote speech from Beverly Jenkins.
One of my favorite quotes from her speech: “Karma is only a bitch if you are.”
There’s a lot going on at all times, and I’m going to be glad when it’s over so I can slink back to my quiet writer’s cave, but tomorrow I will get to hang out with TTQ and Pat Potter for a bit. And I’m looking forward to the RITAs where my amazing friend C.J. Carmichael is up for an award.
