My heart goes out to those who’ve suffered loss with the recent devasting floods in the Nashville area.
Romance Writers of America had planned to hold their annual conference there this July, but the Opryland hotel was hit hard when the levies on the Cumberland River broke. They’ve had to turn us away nearly last minute which meant we had to find another venue to host the conference.
Just the other day RWA found a place to host our conference, and on the same dates which was very important. Maybe attendees and related personahad scheduled time off from work to go at that last week in July, so to change dates would have had a horrid impact on our organization.
So instead of going to beautiful Nashville where country music legends are born, we’re going to Orlando, Florida — Walt Disney World Swan and Dolphin — the land were dreams come true.
Again, my thoughts and prayers are with those hit by this devastating flood.
