*** RWA National Post Conference Thoughts***

The RWA national conference was once again an amazing adventure. I had the wonderful opportunity to have dinner with my publisher, Alexandria Kendall, of Red Sage Publishing, Inc., and an incredible group of other Red Sage authors. The food was excellent and the company ever better.

I came away from the conference this time, not with any grand epiphany, but with the solid, comfortable knowledge that I'm moving in the right direction for where I want to go. It's a nice feeling.

I picked up some great info from the few workshops I managed to attend, (I know I'm bad. };-) The one on writing fight scenes presented by Angela Knight, (one of my idols) was so helpful, and as she spoke the information made such perfect sense, things just fell into place in my head. Can't wait to put that info to use. My current WIP is set in the 1890s Tombstone, AZ. I'm sure I'll have at least one fight scene in there. I found it interesting that a lot of the same concepts are employed when writing love scenes, as when writing fight scenes. I guess it has to do with the high degree of physicality.

So looking forward to next year's conference already. New York City! Time Square, here I come!

Until next time.
