Spring Fling 2012

Last weekend was the Chicago-North Spring Fling Romance Writers’ Conference.

Now that the whirlwind of a weekend is over, I cannot believe how much work the Spring Fling Committee put into the conference, and how effortless they made it all seem. This conference was full of educational programs, networking opportunities, and a star-studded book signing that nearly broke my bank.

The best souvenir?

Hope.

Hope that practice will make each draft just better enough than the last to keep me going.

Hope that someday I’ll write THE book that lands an agent and starts my career.

Hope that, no matter what, I’ll always have someone to turn to in this crazy endeavor we call “writing.”

If you haven’t had a chance to go to a writing conference, give yourself the gift of hope by joining your local RWA Chapter. Trust me, you’ll be glad you did.
