Just came back from Romance Writers of New Zealand annual conference - An Affair to Remember.
I will certainly remember it. A well organised, jam-packed with useful, practical advice, full of nice, friendly people.
Although I am not a romance writer, and certainly not a romance reader, I have found the conference inspiring and motivating. Because it doesn't really matter what type, genre or kind of creative writing you write - there are some elements of the craft that are transferable.
Like advice on the use of flowery language, adjective and adverbs.
Be sparing with perfume!
