Fiorella has attended five National Romance Writers of America annual conferences, and she's learned something from each one. At her first conference, she learned that romance writers are not uniform, that they come in all sizes, shapes, colors, and ages. At her second one, she realized that she would have to stand out from the crowd in order to be published. At her third conference, she realized that winning contests was not enough, that she had to get herself an agent. At her fourth conference, she learned that she was strong enough to deal with a bad situation. At her fifth conference, the one she went to last week, she learned that she needed to write faster.
She also learned that she could have a good time at a conference. See ya in New York next year!
