Spring Fling 2014 Here I Come

Debra gets set to head off to a conference this weekend.

It's just about that time. Every two years my RWA chapter hosts a conference, and this is the year...and the weekend! Friday morning I head out to Spring Fling 2014 for the beginning of two days of networking, workshops, keynote speakers, gala dinners, and a book signing.

This year I'm not pitching to an editor or agent, so I don't have to worry about my elevator pitch. I am volunteering as a time keeper for the editor/agent appointments, so I will get to rub elbows as it were.

I submitted my ad for the program months ago and delivered a conference set of swag (bookmarks) to be distributed to all conference attendees in their goodie bags.

Tonight I'll finish gathering and organizing my supplies:

boxes of books for the book sale/book signing

bookmarks galore

postcards for e-books

And then all I need to do is choose my outfits and I'll be ready to go. Yay!

I'm sure I'll have lots to report next week!

Until next time,

Happy Reading!



  1. Have a wonderful time, Debra - I love writing conferences and have two this year here in the UK!

    1. Hi Rosemary, Thanks! I'm really looking forward to this one. I hope I come home filled with inspiration! :)

  2. Yes! Have a wonderful time.

    I'd love to be able to attend a writers' conference. Some day...

    1. I hope you find one for yourself soon! They are a wonderful experience!

  3. Hope you enjoy the conference, Debra. I've only been to one, and thought the networking aspect was probably the best part.

    1. I'm looking forward to that and catching up with fellow chapter mates/friends I haven't seen in a while since I haven't been very good at making it to meetings in the last year or so.

  4. I love conferences! Ours is every year and although I don't go that often, I get so much out of it when I do. Enjoy!
