Right, well, it’s not really a miracle. People use this feature every day… the “schedule publish blog post” feature. See, when this publishes, I’ll be at the Romance Writers of America annual conference, aka Nationals. I will have very little access to the internet (really… $17 a day at the hotel… my Scottish roots scream in agony at the thought of paying that) and I’ve discovered this week that my phone is not particularly well suited to posting blog entries.
Anyway, I don’t usually use the schedule publish because I have my own personal EM field that mess up electronics wherever I go. My husband has refused to let me use his computer. Every time I touch it, it breaks, and no it’s not from indiscriminate downloading of porn… I assure you, I’m VERY careful 😉 I do lots of QA at work, because if someone can break the developers’ work, it’s me. Which is a long way of saying, I’m not holding my breath that this schedule publish will actually publish, but maybe I won’t care.
I’ll be in the midst of two thousand romance writers (hopefully I’ll manage to catch up with Ella – I met Ella at my very first conference ever). I’ve only been to Nationals once, and as scary as it is being surrounded by that many strangers… well, they’re not really strangers, are they? Writers have a bond that automatically gives us common ground, whether we write inspirational or erotic, historical or sci-fi.
Undoubtedly, by the time this posts, I’ll probably be exhausted already, but as tiring as it is, it’s energizing and inspiring too. If you want to follow conference shenanigans on Twitter, most people are using #RWA11 — I bet there might even be some drunk tweeting (not from me, though, I swear).
