MONEY.
Still waiting to hear back from my friend who helps me with my taxes every year. She's been MIA for awhile now. It's starting to make me paranoid.

But yeah, I'll be getting quite a bit back in taxes. Sadly, not enough to go to both Seattle and ACen (*$500* plane ticket to Illinois). Even more sadder, not enough to go to Writercon in Atlanta to try to get my book looked at by a Tor editor (*cries*).

So, it looks like I'll be skipping ACen this year. I still think you guys rock, though! *Hugs to all* I should have just enough to get my hair re-highlighted, put back the money I stole from my kitty's emergency fund, buy Hex Files, and go to Seattle for much book research!

Well, I have a break to get to, so I'll leave it there.

Current Mood: tired tired

When is the writercon in Atlanta?

Late July.

But the editor is on a first-come first-serve basis with registered con people, so even saving up wouldn't work for it. ... Not that I could with how I make money.

I will be there the end of March so I was hoping by some miracle they would co-inside and I could take it for you but alas.

Well, I appreciate the sentiment. It likely wouldn't have worked anyway. It costs $355 to get into the session with her.

Ah well, I'd be panicking about getting my novel all pretty by then, so it might be for the best.

Aww. :/ Try Southwest, maybe? It looks like they're about $175 less if you're willing to take the L to/from Midway.

Well, I checked a LOT of flight places. The least expensive one was $418 (not including tax) and it had a REALLY crappy flight time. And then there's hotel expenses (can't share, since my paranoia would keep me awake), food, anime goodness.. and so forth.

Now, I'm going to Jackpot next weekend. If for some odd reason Lady Luck decides to give me a kiss, we'll talk.

You promised you'd visit Boise this summer anyway though, right? ^_~

Bah! We'll all miss you.

I did? <_< >_>

I'll miss you guys too!

Yeeeeeees. *Beat* Okay, maybe you said something about trying. But, isn't that the same thing? ^_^
