Is me winding down from a fabulous weekend in the Chicago area.
I attended the 2018 Chicago North RWA Spring Fling. I am home now. Exhausted and exhilarated. There’s nothing like spending time with other writers to recharge the creative juices.
The big advantage to attending a conference in Chicago is the fact that I can combine it with family and friends time.
I got to visit with my niece and her boys, where I met my new (ish) great-nephew, I had time to hang out with my sister one-on-one, and had pizza with my brother and his family (where I had my butt kicked playing Sequence for Kids).
I also got to spend an evening with some of my sorority sisters – some of whom I hadn’t seen in mumblemumblemumble years.
The best part, as always, was having the chance to catch up with my life-long besties. From cooing over prom dresses and repeatedly apologizing to Jen’s daughter for being…us…to sweet, gorgeous young Mike, who had no idea what he was getting served when the hostess seated this party of four.
I’m home now. The laundry had to be piled up whilst Sally and I got reacquainted with an epic nap, but there’s always tomorrow.
Oh! And I finished the first draft on my latest work in progress before I left, so if you are looking for me, I’ll be in the revision cave for the next couple of months.
Thanks to all of my hardworking members of the CNRWA chapter for putting on such a great conference. See you in 2020!
And go, Cubs, go!
