Whatever was causing my posting problem... this is a workaround for it.

If you are getting a “specified cast invalid” error when you try to post, and there's no apparent reason for it... try doing this:

  1. Make a copy (Ctrl+C is fine) of your post. 
  2. Save a post with just a couple words in it.
  3. Go in to the Admin screen and edit that post.
  4. Paste in the previous post that would not submit.
  5. Save your post.
  6. Voila!

This happens to me more times than I care to recall. So far, my workaround has worked every time.

That's exactly what I do as well. Works every time.
