Well, my friends, I’m back from attending my first ever RWA (Romance Writers of America) conference, and it was everything I hoped it would be and so much more! Now, brace yourselves, grab a snack. Be sure to stay hydrated. This post reached epic length about halfway through typing it…
Connecticut…the state where there’s a gazebo in every town. Like, EVERY town. I stopped taking pictures after the fifth one I spotted. Now, you may be wondering what a Canuck like me was doing in a place like Connecticut. That’s an excellent question and I’m glad you asked. Firstly, to visit Washington Depot–the town that inspired Stars Hollow, the setting for my beloved Gilmore Girls.
Hey there, fabulous people! I’d love to stay and chat, but I’m currently en route to Missouri to begin my MOAR Tour! I’ll be spending the next four days with two of my best gal pals. One lives in Missouri, and the other in Arkansas, hence the MOAR acronym.
Back in 2007, as a ripe young graduate fresh from her first university degree, I worked as a Recreation Manager at Rocky Crest Resort in Muskoka, Ontario (a.k.a. cottage country). That was also the year I gave birth to the kidney stone that ate Tokyo, but that’s another story for another time. My duties at the resort included running all resort activities, hiring and training the summer recreation staff, supervising a daily kids’ camp, designing and implementing team-building events for corporate groups, and taking guests on tours of the lake in our pontoon boat. Needless to say, I was a very busy girl. But it was a pretty cool gig, I must admit. I mean, check this place out!
