10 Random Thoughts and Takeaways from #RWA17

I just returned from the annual RWA conference, which concluded yesterday. As an extreme introvert, I’ll need at least a week to recover. However, I can easily say (like I do every year) it was the highlight of my year. I absolutely love this conference. Here's my ten random thoughts and takeaways from this year. 1. If you ever stay at Disney World’s Dolphin resort, get a burrito from the Picabu restaurant. They are AH-mazing! (Yes, two pictures because I had it twice. It was that good.) 2.

Thoughts on STORY GENIUS (Part 1)

So far this summer, I’ve been spending a lot of time reading, which is something I should do more of but usually don’t because I always feel like there is something else I should be doing. Reading is so indulgent that I often feel guilty taking the time. However, as a writer I should be reading daily. In addition to various novels, I’ve been reading craft books. In just a few weeks, I’m heading to the yearly RWA national conference, where Lisa Cron will be giving a workshop, so I picked up Story Genius. I’ve only read three chapters so…
