What a fantastic weekend! When Words Collide 2012 was this past weekend in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.
The panels I attended were top-rate, the fellow conference goers wonderful, the organizers incredible, and the overall feel was that of charged excitement, community and open knowledge sharing.
I had the wonderful pleasure to be on two panels this year and many thanks to those who attended. I had a great time as a panelist for Beyond the Bedroom - There's More to Romance than Sex with fellow ARWA members Jude Wilner, Billie Milholland and Sharon Wildwind. Romance in stories is so much more than sex and we got to gab about it. Check out my article Writing Sexual Tension, Heightening Your Readers' Satisfaction for more of my thoughts on this oh-so-fun and ridiculously important (ok, so it is important to me) topic.
I was delighted at the opportunity to panel with the three gentlemen Dave Duncan, Dave Gross and Tim Reynolds in Humour in Fiction. These guys were awesome and welcomed an adventure romance writer to their fold. Humour is vital in life and an integral part of the stories I love. Cheers guys, sign me up again for next year!
It was a great weekend. Thank you.
