Back from Conference!!

I'm BackAnother year, and another conference has passed. I’ve just arrived home from my trip to Sydney for the 2014 Romance Writers of Australia Conference “Romance Rocks”, and I had a truly fantastic time. Catching up with friends, meeting and making new ones, talking about books for three straight days – how could you not enjoy that?

Last year, I attended my first conference in Fremantle, and decided immediately that I would go back for a second dose of conference awesome this year. As I am working my way towards my first manuscript, I decided to approach this year’s conference with my writer’s hat on. The workshops I attended, and the conversations I had, have filled me with enthusiasm and renewed passion for the story I want to write.

A big thanks to the fabulous organisers of the conference! You did an incredible, amazing job of bringing Romance Rocks to fruition, and I (for one) could not have had a better time! Definitely looking forward to Get Fresh in Melbourne next year. Aspiring romance writers, the conference experience is one you must have – it has certainly made my passion for romance fiction greater, and my desire to write it even stronger.
