Happy Monday! Guess what? The weekend may have been filled with doom and gloom as the country battles to form a government under darkening May skies, but now... it's sunny! And while we're no closer to a government here, I can safely say I have moved past the point of caring. So let's move on to today's topic, shall we?
I'm so excited to finally be going to a writer's conference this July -- the wonderful Romantic Novelists' Association is holding their annual gathering this year in London. Since I don't need to pay for travel or lodging, this means I can just about afford to go (thanks, overdraft!). Now here's where I really start stressing: how will I spend three days milling around with people I don't even know?
I need your help. Should I:
a) Bring trays of cupcakes and distribute them at random, hoping people will pounce and speak to me in the process?
b) Get completely sozzled so I don't care if no-one talks to me, I can have my own party?
c) Wear a T-shirt that says: I'll give you £10 if you talk to me?
d) Pretend I'm an agent so I can be popular?
Any other options I've missed out on?
