This weekend I had one of the best experiences that I can remember. I attended the Silken Sands Writers' Conference hosted by the Gulf Coast Chapter of the Romance Writers of America. It was incredibly well run (great workshops!), and the people were amazing. If you are able to go in 2012, I cannot encourage you enough to do so.
An added bonus was the new friends that I made the Southern Sizzlers. They are some fun and classy ladies. Between Moondays and Wet Wednesdays, I think I have found the motivation to make it through the week!
