Oh boy. This will be my FIFTH RWA National Conference. I can't believe it. And this year I'll be flying to....
I haven't been to Denver in so long. Fun fact: It's where my husband proposed to me. So going to a ROMANCE conference there is very much on point for me. And oh, I'm so excited for (hopefully) some cooler temperatures but also to be surrounded by my people. My tribe. My besties.
I'm Sort Of Obsessed With Packing
That's.... normal, right? If you already follow me, you know that I'm a capital-P Planner so it totally makes sense that I make lists of what I want to take on trips. But one of my favorite packing hacks/ tools is sadly, lost forever. See, I used to be a regular user of the site Polyvore and yes, I would plan out any vacation outfits and accessories there but the site shut down this year. Now I'm trying out a combination of Pinterest board + Trello board to see if that is sufficient for my shoe-assessment needs. You see, I like to pack light - but fabulous. So. It takes both some flair and organization.
If you're attending RWA, whether a repeat attendee or for the first time, you can take a peek at my past post on WHAT TO PACK. I still stand by these tips and tricks but this year it will be a little different because I'm headed to Denver for a few days before the conference starts for a writing retreat. So smart of me to schedule this! With the writing retreat, I'll have to throw in a few more casual tees and shorts, a caftan, my hot pink Birkenstocks and my Very Smart Lady Glasses. I'm going for a Writing Retreat Chic look.
If you follow me on social media next week, you can judge for yourself whether I've reached that particular fashion goal.
I will be signing books at the Gallery/ Pocket Books signing at 8:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 19. Bring your coffee and come get a copy of The Royal Runaway signed!
I will also be presenting a 20/20 session on Friday about content marketing and I'll have special swag reserved for librarians, bloggers and readers!
Alas, these events are only for conference registrants, but stay in the know about my upcoming future appearances by signing up for The Inner Circle - my exclusive newsletter.
And hit me up if you similarly enjoy the vacation packing experience and have a packing trick or tip! I'd love to hear them!
