2010 RWA Conference Packing Tips from the Pens

Well, three quarters of the Pens (Boo-Hoo, we wish Gigi and Martha were coming too!) are heading off to the Romance Writers of America annual conference next week, so we thought we'd offer a few packing tips.

Items not to forget:

1. A notebook: you will be struck with idea after idea, bring a notebook so you can write them all down, because invariably you are brain dead after a week of social interaction and will forget if you don't

2. Chocolate: you will need sustenance after running the gauntlet of hallways and conference room mazes to find your workshops

3. The most comfortable shoes you own: even if your shoes are comfortable, by the end of the day your feet are going to hurt

4. Corkscrew: if you choose to forgo the bar one night and buy your own, you won't want to wait an hour for housekeeping to deliver a corkscrew so you can dive into that bottle of wine

We're sure there are more comprehensive lists and tips but we feel these are the things NOT TO FORGET :)

Have fun! Be sure to look for us in the various bars and stop by and say hello!

ha many times did it take us to learn that corkscrew tip?

and here's one I stole from a smart person: bring your own flat-rate postal boxes, then just give them to the concierge to mail when they are full of books. WAY cheaper than the on-site shipper!

I assume these are also applicable to Bouchercon? I'll try and remember to tote along some wine from the home stash, just in case.
