2010 is a very special year if you’re a romantic novelist because it marks the 50th anniversary of the Romantic Novelists’ Association. I’ve been a member since 1996 and I’ve made so many friends through the society and had so much encouragement over the years. Oh, and they throw the best parties ever so membership is jolly good fun too!
Each year, the RNA have a conference – a long weekend of wonderful talks, workshops and fun and, to mark their special anniversary, this year’s venue was Greenwich.
I went along for the Industry Day yesterday which turned out to be the hottest day of the year with temperatures reaching 31 degrees celsius in London! But the Thames looked so beautiful and, travelling on the Docklands Light Railway, I couldn’t help feeling that I was on holiday.
Now it’s back to work in a very hot study with the fan going full blast. But I think I’ll escape to the garden later with a good book. When you’re a writer, you can claim that such things are actually work!
