Everybody seems to have enjoyed it.

Wow, that was fun. And my feet still hurt. :)

I learned a lot, mostly about writing a series and how to keep track of your writing time. It was quite a week.

It's like you can be there without being there!

I keep reading the threads of the Beau Monde chapter who are having their own mini conference.

Right? Last time I went, I still had a flip phone. So much easier to take/post photos with a smart phone.

Sounds exciting, don't blame you. What name do you write under?

That has happened to me. Now I'm much more suave. Unless it's Diana Gabaldon or Nora Roberts.

I talk online to some members of the RWA Beau Monde group, on FB and the forum, and I do some beta reading for them as well, so it would be fantastic to meet them in person. I would totally fangirl.

I've been before and it's fun! Plus you learn a lot. One of my favorite parts is meeting in person people to whom you've only spoken online.

I'd love to go but: too far, too expensive, and there was that New Zealander, little old white lady, who got stopped going to a conference where she was a keynote speaker, or up for an award or something, and got interrogated for hours by the authorities.

Still, would love to go. Tell us what it's like.

Just did it a couple of days ago, and the Beau Monde chapter, and have been sent an email about the on-line group as well, but have to fill out the form and pay up for that one still. Already have had some interesting emails from the fora, and a very nice welcoming message.

I'm certainly going to join. Have to get my act together.

It's not that it's more picky - it's that there are members who go for the camaraderie and never write a word. plus there's a program called The End that helps motivate members to get those words written. I learned so much from other members it's totally worth it.

Yes, I was thinking the topic ought to move from the Introductions thread too.

I sort of came to that conclusion, that until I actually get a book out I could qualify for an Associate membership. But I'm sure when I looked a while back you merely had to say that you were a serious writer, even if you hadn't been published. Is everyone getting more picky, do you think? They do at least still accept Indie writers.

Think not. Do.

If you do what you've always done, you'll get what you've always got.

I moved the discussion about RWA from the intro section to here. :)

I don't remember what the levels are, but if you are actively writing, you should be able to join. You're not an editor, so I know you wouldn't be an associate, and I don't think you're published? so you wouldn't be PAN. If you've never sent your story off to an agent or editor than you wouldn't be PRO. So, probably a general member? You can change it if or when needed.
