If this wasn't the big romance writers convention, and if I wasn't going to get the opportunity to meet people I never get to see in real life (and a couple that I've had professional relationships with for years and have never had the privilege of meeting in person), I'd totally stay home. Or find a local hotel and hide there for a week. This is basically a week long of socializing and networking, two things I hate the most. Unfortunately, it's a necessary evil.
Time to log off and pack my laptop away. Next time I post, it'll be from Chicago. :)
