Its two days until the Romance Writers Australia (RWA) annual conference, can you tell I am excited???
Spoiler alert: I am!
Last year I attended my first RWA conference, and it was an eye opener. It was full of fantastic craft workshops, great networking events and more importantly, I found my tribe.
I have read countless articles about the importance of finding your tribe, and like many other people, I paid it off. I am at heart an introvert, the last thing I ever want to do is mingle with strangers, but I can honestly say that it was worth it. A writer’s conference is probably the only type of event, where introverts surround you and everyone wants to discuss their favourite books or what they are writing.
If you haven’t worked up the courage yet to attend one, even for a day. Be brave. Take the plunge. It’s worth it!
