I know a bunch of great people in the romance-writing community, and I've been to several of the Romance Writers of America national conferences to learn about craft and hang with friends. This year's was in Atlanta, last week. From time to time over the course of the event, I checked in via Twitter, to get news of friends and acquaintances. For an introvert like me, it was a great way to "attend" the conference without being overwhelmed. I was particularly pleased to see Eloisa James win a Rita.
Now, I've got the post-conference blues, and I didn't even go to the conference!
