Romance Writers of Australia Conference 2012

Finished packing last night (this morning) at about 1am, and had to be up at 6 so didn’t get a lot of sleep.

Left home at 6.30am to get to the airport in time for my check in and 9am flight.  Thought that I would have room in my bags for all the books and goodies I will get this weekend, but I am already at my weight limit.  Oops.  Looks like I will have to either ditch some stuff or send some of the books back via mail.  I suppose there is the possibility that I over packed, but I needed 5 days of clothes, plus outfits for 3 evening / cocktail functions.  Plus I brought gym gear with me for a few days.  I’m just worried I’m going to be too warm, I brought stuff to suit Sydney weather.  I feel I was woefully mislead by a friend who lives locally, who said that the weather was cold and drizzly.

Registered for the conference.  There were professional development sessions today for published authors which obviously I didn’t qualify for, although they did look interesting.   I did get to go to the Penguin Special event in the Stingray bar tonight, more on that in the next post.

However this year, for the first time I am doing the optional day of workshops on Friday.    It is being run by Alexandra Sokoloff and is called Screenwriting Tricks for Authors.  I had to do some homework during the week and email it to her, but I’ll talk about all that in another post.

Your thoughts and stuff
