Romance Writers of Australia are holding their 20th Anniversary Conference next weekend. 350 of us are descending on Melbourne ready to listen, learn, talk and party.
This will be about my 7th or 8th conference not including the RWAmerica one I attended in Washington. Apart from the massive boost of being surrounded by like minded people I always come away from a conference with at least one or two lightbulb moments which I carry on into my writing.
eg At one of my earlier conference workshop sessions I suddenly clicked with what that elusive phrase 'emotional punch' means. The presenter made her points in a way which I 'got'. Doesn't mean I could actually do it but I knew what I was trying to do and that was a massive help.
What lightbulb moments have you come away with from a workshop or conference?
