Gail Ingis | RWA in NYC


I love doing my blog. I have invited some of my fellow historic SMP writers for interviews. The response to my invite was encouraging. I also invite my Connecticut Chapter of Romance Writer’s (CTRWA) of America writers. Without my CTRWA group, I wouldn’t even be here. They are amazing. One of our writers won the Rita Award this year. We have quite a chapter in Connecticut.

Hi, Writers—

RWA annual conference is like flying back from California on the red eye. It takes about three days to recuperate. The conference is all about filling your needs, the writer. You don’t stop except to sleep; to reenergize. Stop by and get some bits and pieces about the 2015 conference and NYC.

The conference is in San Diego in 2016.

Re: Gail Ingis | RWA in NYC

I just wanted to say that I find it interesting how you switched gears in mid-stride from interior design to writing Romance!! At one time, I, myself, loved interior design, but loved the English language more, and wanted to take English once I went to college. My Mother, however, used to make insults about my choice. I think deep down inside she really wanted me to become a Doctor, because I was the most intelligent of her Daughters. Because I became so disgusted by her insults, I decided not to go to college at all, which was very foolish on my part, especially due to the fact that they would have footed the entire bill!! I've always had the urge in me to write, but that wasn't the reason why I wanted to take English in college. I just loved the language, and wanted to see where it would take me. Now I have a book inside me, and don't have the guts to get it written. I admire anyone, especially someone like you, who would dare to take the dream and run with it!! Congratulations on your career choice, and I'll be keeping an eye out for your books!!
