Reno Talkin’

by Kay~Kacey on 7/13/2005

okay, I’m SO READY for Reno. I love going to the RWA National conference. Catching up with old friends. Meeting new people. Gossiping. Seeing what people are wearing :mrgreen:

Michelle suggested that bloggers meet in the back left corner at the cocktail reception on Thursday night. So if you’re going to the reception, look for us there! :beer:

So who is going? And if it’s your first conference do you have any questions? My group of friends has been going for, well lots of years. We’ve known each other since GEnie days…an old dialup message board. Twelve years maybe? We LOVE conferences. You can find us in the bar most evenings at some time or the other 😆

And while some of the lists are going on about what you can and cannot wear…the honest truth is you’ll see a little bit of everything. And at the Rita Awards you’ll see long gowns to short fancy cocktail dresses to nice dresses to fancy black pants and sparkly tops. So don’t feel like you have to go out and spend big bucks on a long gown.

Okay, who is going and when are you getting there? Is it your first conference? Coming alone? With friends? Your dh? Check in! Can’t wait to meet you!

I’m going! I’m a conference virgin , I’m a total introvert, crowds make me nervous and I don’t really know many people.

And for some reason I’m not nervous yet. 😯

I’m going! If i can squeeze myself into my conference clothes.

Wish I could go.

*kicks couch*

I’m going! This is my third conference, only this year I’ll be wearing a pink first sale ribbon. Yay! I’ll try to meet up, too, on Thursday night. I’m wearing a vintage gown of my grandmother’s to the RITAs, I just have to hold my breath the whole time to stay in it.


Mary July 14, 2005 at 7:25 am

I’m going, counting the days. I can’t wait.

Steph T. July 14, 2005 at 7:29 am

*sniff* Not going. Please make sure you post about all the fun stuff, so I can live vicariously through you!

Michelle July 14, 2005 at 7:57 am

I’m going! But then, you knew that. :beer: Can’t wait to meet everyone. We need more pink ribbons. 🙂

Kelly =) July 14, 2005 at 10:31 am

Yes, I’m going, first conference. Going with the dh. I’ll be awed, nervous, shy! 😆

Sheri July 14, 2005 at 12:34 pm

I’m sooo jealous of everyone going to Reno! I can’t wait to hear the stories though.

Tori July 14, 2005 at 12:54 pm

*sigh* I’m not going. On the bright side, it’ll give me a chance to catch up on all the blogs that I’ve let slide the last few days. 🙄

Crystal* July 14, 2005 at 5:21 pm

I’m begging you. I want details. LOTS and LOTS of details. :secret:
I also need to live vicariously through you! Bring us back ALL the news and gossip!!!
Damn, I wish I was going! :cursing:

Suzanne July 14, 2005 at 5:41 pm

I CAN’T WAIT!!! Oh wait, I can wait. I still need to shop.

Kelly July 14, 2005 at 6:55 pm

I am SO excited about Reno. It’s my first conference and six of us are coming down from Nova Scotia. I can’t wait. I’m lucky to be rooming with Julianne MacLean who is a bit of a vet and on our loooong flights down I’m going to pick her brain until she threatens to throw me off the plane. 😆 I’m really happy to be going with a group of friends and meeting some bloggers once I’m down there. I think it’s going to be a blast. :lips:

kacey July 14, 2005 at 7:54 pm

Yes, I’m sure there will be lots of details from Reno…though I’m still undecided on whether I’m bringing my laptop or not. I usually do…but I’m thinking of traveling lighter since it’s so damn hard to get into Reno. No direct flights. Plane changes. Etc. I love to travel, but I really, really prefer places I can fly to directly. Hm, a flight snob. That’s me.

Amy K July 14, 2005 at 8:33 pm

I’m going and I hope to be there Thursday night to meet the Blog World. :cool2: I’m getting in Tuesday afternoon. It’s my first conference, I’m technically coming alone although I’ll have a few of my critique group once I get there. No one I’ve ever met in person! See you then!

Melissa July 15, 2005 at 10:24 am

Can’t make it this year and don’t know about next year, either. It’s a toss-up between going to England or going to Atlanta – hmmm…which one do you think I’ll pick? 😉

Sasha July 18, 2005 at 8:18 pm

I’m going!! But I’ll be at the Midnight Madness Bazaar onThursday night. (setup starts ealy) 🙁

I’ll have to find another way to track you down. :cool2:
