I'm drinking a cup now. I've had worse. But after I finish this post and get out of my PJs, I'm heading for Dunkin Donuts. This is DEADLINE WEEK and I must be properly fueled.
This week several of my fellow writers and friends will be attending the RWA (Romance Writers of America) National Conference in Atlanta, GA. A week of workshops and networking. I will not be there. I will be here. Writing. Because this is DEADLINE WEEK. The dates of this year's con couldn't have fallen at a worse time for me. I had not one, but several work related conflicts in addition to having a book due. I couldn't swing it. I was okay with the decision (made months ago) until today. I've been been feeling like a hermit for weeks. Now I feel totally out of the loop.
Next year. I'll socialize and network next year.
Although many of the writers whose books and blogs we love will be away all week, many will not. Some, like me, couldn't go. Some wouldn't go if you paid them. Some don't write romantic fiction. There are plenty of places to go, people to read. Each day this week, I'll try to point you to someone new or someplace you've missed. Lord knows I won't have any thought provoking posts for awhile. My brain is fried. Did I mention it's deadline week? Heh.

I'm off to Dunkin' Donuts. Have fun with Jane.
