One of the things I don't talk about in my report is how difficult conventions can be. Everything is faster and more intense. Emotions run high.

I got smacked in the face on Thursday evening with an extreme disappointment professionally and it colored my entire weekend. At one point, I was seriously considering just walking away from the publishing business altogether. I'm not sure what else I would do but I wasn't thinking that far ahead.

Obviously, I'm not going to. I like writing and such. I'm not going to let a disappointment keep me down for long.

Ah, well. Life is rough sometimes. We'll see what tomorrow brings.
