As you read this, I will be riding a train to New York City for the Romance Writers of America's annual conference. I've only travelled once by train before, but it wasn't as long a trip as this will be. My hubby the train buff is actually disappointed he's not going with me. We'll have to plan another trip sometime.
It's over 8 hours by train from Buffalo to NYC, which seems like a lot of time riding the rails. I'm travelling with some friends from the Western NY Romance Writers chapter, so I'm sure there will be lots of writing talk, both on the way to conference and coming back home. I'll also have my netbook and Kindle with me, so if we ever want to rest our vocal chords, I won't lack for things to do.
I'm looking forward to some interesting workshops in NY, inspiring discussions, and the chance to meet up with old friends and make some new ones. I don't have any agent or editor appointments, as I generally suck at them. But who knows what might happen over the next few days. I plan to take a lot of pictures and will share some of them, and possibly some interesting stories, with you next week after I get back home.
So I'm off to pack. Who else will be at National this week?
