So for the first time ever I’m going to a conference! I’m headed to Sydney for the Australian  Romance Writer’s Conference. I’m excited and nervous all rolled into one pocket package.

A couple of years ago my husband and I decided if we are really going to make a go of this writing ‘thing’ I kept doing, we’d better put some effort into it. While I’m not published yet, going to this conference will help me is so many ways. From meeting other writing people to learning in the sessions and simply stepping out of my comfort zone. This is going to be a great time.

What am I looking forward to most? There’s a few things really. I’m hungry to learn more about the craft of writing and how to put a book together. It’s not as easy as some might think it is! I’m keen to meet like-minded people who also have people (ahem-characters) that run around their brains, telling them stories and generally keeping them awake at night. I’m excited about simply being immersed into a world where my heart loves to be.

I’m nervous about meeting people I have never met before, but I’m going to put my best foot forward, smile and say hi – they might be just as nervous as me! Who knows?!

I’ll post back afterwards and let you know how it all went!
