I’ve barely had time for the Golden Heart announcement to sink in and now I’m packed and getting ready to fly to New England in a couple of hours for the New England Chapter RWA conference. I’m hoping being a finalist will help in the pitching department, but I’ll still be a nervous wreck.
I’m looking forward to meeting up with friends, attending some great workshops and if I can manage it…a trip to Boston for either a Mike’s Cannoli or Finale. Oh, the delicious calories!
In two weeks I’ll be attending my first non-national RWA conference. I’ve been to Nationals for three years in a row now, but I decided to get in a smaller conference this year as well. I’m really looking forward to the workshops and networking opportunities. They have a really impressive line-up and I’m such a good little student when it comes to attending workshops.
I don’t think I’ll be pitching this conference. In fact, I’m steering clear of the elevators. 🙂
Here’s my current conference checklist:
1. Business cards – check
2. R.F. Long’s promotional materials to pass out – check
3. Hotel room – check
4. Pick out conference outfits
*5. Research attending agents/editors
*6. 10 minute agent pitch ready
*7. elevator pitch ready
Okay, I said I probably wouldn’t be pitching, but I should be prepared nonetheless, right? Carpe diem.
