Going to RWA

I have been busy packing for the RWA Conference in Orlando.
With the new rules on baggage, I'm limiting myself to one bag for five days. sounds tricky, huh? It is. I need three pairs of shoes and underwear along with nice clothes for the conference and one special outfit for when I speak on a panel on Saturday morning.
So here I am writing my speech about an invisible disability. The panel is about giving your characters disabilities and making them real. If you're going to be there, come and listen. We have lots of handouts.
I'm excited about going. I need the enthusiasm. I always learn something new or am reminded of what I've forgotten.
I'm also looking forward to seeing friends I chat with on-line. this year I have an extra task. My local chapter wants to host on-line classes again and I'll be asking for help. If you're interested in doing a class let me know.

Please follow, friend or like me. I love to hear from my readers.

Oh, you'll have fun, Barbara. It's always nice to work with a panel...and putting faces to names is the best. The topic of your panel sounds interesting, too!

Hi Rokynn,
Panels are easier since I don't need to fill 45 minutes. We're hoping it will have lots of attendees.

Barbara Edwards said...

Thanks Brenda. I will try

Barbara Edwards said...

Hi Vonnie,
I'd hoped to see you there.

Ha, ha, I cut it down to two pair. Comfort is everything.

Barb, I'll be at National this year. Would love to meet you face to face. Best of luck with your panel. I'll try to stop in.

Have a great time, Barb. Learn lots, have fun. Come back and share with us. When I went to conferences, I always learned something new and something I'd forgotten. I'm interested in what you find out about doing online classes. Our chapter has thought about doing that, too.
