Favorite things: I married my Bear. The video link is here. I also got to spend time with friends that I only see once/year, saw some amazing writing panels, and got to game with some of our gaming group. I also possibly found a writing group, or if not, a place to find a writing group!
Least favorite things: Are the crowds getting bigger? Also, standing in line with J for like 2 hours to get his pass on Saturday. We could have planned better. Also, running out of money over and over again. That sucks. But it’s a Dragon*Con tradition.
Panels I attended:
Hourly Writing Seminar: Talk to me
Reading: Widget Walls
Belief Systems in SF101
Vampires, Demons, and Werewolves–Oh, My!
The Witching Hour
What Makes a Villain?
Down and Dirty Marketing for Authors
Short and Not So Sweet Stories
Future of Speculative Fiction
I’ll be writing out my notes in future posts. I learned quite a lot in these panels, and I was really fortunate to get some great tips. I also got a lot of inspiration from the authors and topics, and will hopefully be using that to propel myself. I created a Word Count Page here to keep track of my progress, and a Links page to keep track of links I use (or need to use more). 🙂
