“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.” – Ibn Battuta
I’m planning some trips. I love traveling. I love seeing new things, new people, learning new customs. Now, you may think just going to another state can’t translate to new customs, but it does. Think of cities that have personalities? New Orleans, San Francisco, Los Angeles. While the ambiance might be stronger in some cities, all those places have their own feel and are very different.
I was just in Washington, D.C. to teach a writing workshop to the Washington, D.C. RWA. I had a great time in our capital city. The cherry blossoms were all in bloom and I met some wonderful people. I even saw some of their famous monuments. And I had a great dinner out with friends.
In May, I’m heading north for the Wisconsin RWA Write Touch Conference, May 19-21st. I’ll be teaching another writer’s workshop: It’s Not Just Adding A Naked Tattooed Guy: Using Humor In Your Writing. So, if you live in the Green Bay area, I hope you’ll attend.
But talking about different cultures and customs, come August I’ll be going a bit further from home—all the way to New Zealand! Yes, I’ll be at the RWNZ Conference, August 18-20th at the Novotel Lakeside Hotel in Rotorua, New Zealand. I can’t wait to explore the north island of this beautiful country.
Where have you been? Where are planning to go? Where would you love to go?
