What a wonderful experience at The RWA Conference in New York
OMG. What to pack. What to take. Business Casual — but you saw everything. My suggestion, dress for comfort. Something nice and comfortable shoes for LOTS of walking. Something Very Nice or Formal for the ceremonies. Sequins are not necessary unless you are winning an award. But you’ll fit in perfectly if you decide glamour is for you.
The cab ride was wild. We had a private cab. Due to the traffic, the driver tried to keep adding more to the fee the longer we sat in bumper to bumper traffic. Crazy drivers. 1 hour to get to the hotel.
Can you believe this sign?
The Soul Mate Publishing Gang! Thank you Debby for dinner and a fun evening.
How wonderful to meet those you have chatted with on line.
I found some great workshops, but several of the ones I wanted were already full. Sitting on the floor, standing room only, or could not even get in the door. Good thing there were other choices. My very favorite author Jude Deveraux
I met so many amazing authors. And I enjoyed the Publishing House’s author signings.
Learned some great tips on all sorts of material.
Starbucks made a mint off of the authors! Chuckles. And I stayed wired, but crashed in bed each night when my head hit the pillow.
Time’s Square was – different. Every dress up character available for a picture My friend went to take her photo with the statue of liberty guy,
“I work for money!” He said !
Loved walking the streets and seeing the sights. Lots of shops,
Broadway theaters – I so want to see “Phantom of the Opera” !
Back to the Conference. Golden Heart and Rita Awards. People don’t believe the grandeur of the ceremony, when I mention it is just like Hollywood Oscar and Grammy awards.
Thank you for sharing a walk through memory lane at the 2015 RWA Conference in New York !
For those of you who have not been, the first time for a RWA author is an eye opener experience. If you get the chance to go — GO ! Have a great day ! And remember . . .
Keep the Spirit !
