RWA National – July 18

Hard to believe that a week has passed since our return from Washington, D.C.   A whole week but memories of 2009’s RWA National at the Marriott stay vivid – the speakers, workshops, booksignings, the RITA & GH awards, and chatting with old friends and new.  To wrap up this sensational event, I’ll post several of my remaining pictures.  (Click the photos for links.)

Fire engines showed up just after lunch on Saturday.  False alarm but it emptied the hotel for about a half hour.  Pleasant breeze.  During the break, I enjoyed meeting a fellow WisRWA member.  (Click pic to see who.)

  1. I’m still missing that I didn’t go. But I’m looking forward to Nashville, though the heat will be daunting I’m sure. 🙂

    So glad your trip was all you’d hope it would be and now that you’re home you’re back to writing again.

    That’s always the hard part…
