I'm back! And I bet most of you didn't even know I was gone. :P

On Friday I trundled off to the Ramada Hotel in Coventry for my first ever WriterconUK Midimeet. Of the 25 other attendees, I had met precisely one before: [livejournal.com profile] kitty_poker1, so it was a weekend of dizzying memory blanks and jumbled names/nyms/IDs.

A complete(ish) list of attendees can be found here, as I am really not up to that amount of coding right now. *g*

There were talks and presentations a-plenty, and I got to pretend I knew what I was on about by giving a talk on (my opinion on) how best to moderate communities. It was both terrifying and thrilling. And apparently also educational. (Yay me!)

I had my first ever Thai food on friday night and will now pine piteously because there is no Thai restaurant in my town and that makes me saaaaaaaad. :(

The program of events for the weekend can be found here. With any luck, people will be making posts in [livejournal.com profile] writerconuk reiterating their presentations and talks for anyone who might be interested.

Feel free to link me to anything interesting I might miss in my mad scroll through flistdom.

Roll on WriterconUK Midmeet 2010!

*smooches to you all*

Your talk was excellent! And put me off ever modding a comm, in the nicest possible way. It means making decisions. And, heaven forfend, tagging. *wibble*

I'll be so much nicer to comm mods from now on. It's not just a matter of clicking on 'create community' and waiting for them To Come. Eek!

How are you still awake? And [livejournal.com profile] hils is, too. There was too little alcohol involved is the only excuse. :P

The programme really worked out to be well-balanced and highly entertaining as well as educational. Who knew? It wasn't quite stick in a pin...

Roll on WriterconUK Midimeet 2010 indeed! Same place, similar time. *g*

*smoooooches*

Hurrah! You have returned to us!

I has missed you lots.

You must read: http://arch-schatten.livejournal.com/111471.html Excellent Damian characterisation. Perfect for getting a grip for fic-writing purps.

Also, I have been d/l. I went a bit mad. Will email you about it tomorrow when you're more recovered from all the fun.

~smoochies~

I'm glad you got home safe. It was lovely to meet you. Next year I will try and wean myself towards later nights, for a few weeks before hand, *grin* in the hope that I might be able to keep up with you and Kitty and Hils.

I'm so pleased you enjoyed it and look forward to meeting you again next year.
