RWA 2013: Atlanta Day 3

The conference officially began today. Loads of workshops and speakers were scheduled, including the lunch with key note speaker, Cathy Maxwell.

The jam-packed ballroom.

The jam-packed ballroom.

Cathy’s powerful speech had us all laughing and crying. The theme was, “You ARE good enough.” That, as writers, we all doubt ourselves and whether we’re good enough for this business. (Even Susan Elizabeth Phillips still feels fear, believe it or not, according to her presentation at TGN Retreat.) But Cathy’s message was to push on through the fear and self-doubt.

RWA 2013: 2 Days Until Atlanta

This week begins RWA’s 2013 annual conference in Atlanta.


I hadn’t originally planned to attend this year, but I was fortunate to final in the Historical category of the Golden Heart® contest. A plane ticket was booked in record time, let me tell you.

Coincidentally, it’s my week to blog on the Femmes so I thought I would write a daily #RWA13 journal of my conference experience. Sadly not all the Femmes are able to join us in Atlanta. We’ll miss them, but hopefully my posts will help them (and anyone else not attending) feel a bit more connected to the conference goings-on.

The conference looks to be JAM packed. In addition to the regular workshops, meals, and hubbub, you’ll get a front-row seat to all the Golden Heart festivities.

So check back each day to see what happens when New Jersey marches on Atlanta!
