I guess I'm really doing it. After about a month and a half of bargaining, cajoling, pushing, and prodding not to mention some grumbling, whining, and second (and third and fourth) thoughts, I've secured the time off I've been hoping for that will allow me to attend a couple of days of BEA along with Book Blogger Convention. I've paid my blogger con fee, and booked a hotel room that is supposedly a mere 3.5 blocks from the Javits Center. A few more logistics plus a lot more time spent telling myself it will be great fun and not utterly terrifying, and I should be ready to go!
I doubt such a thing could be much further out of my comfort zone or less in keeping with the crummy blogger I've been lately. However, NYC is such an easy trip for me that I think I'd beat myself up forever for missing out on the opportunity. That, and I try to make a habit out of not letting myself get too comfortable, so this should be just the ticket...right?
Anyhow, despite my reservations, I am really looking forward to putting some faces with some names and hoping I won't end up being the biggest BEA wallflower ever.
How about you? Will you be there? Are you a little nervous? And most importantly, can I interest you in meeting me? ;-)
