Two weeks till CONFusion! I’m really looking forward to this convention and if you’re there, I WANT TO MEET YOU.
Here’s my schedule as it stands:
- Friday, 7:00pm – Defying Gravity – Too often we see new writers compared to Neil Gaiman or Margaret Atwood for purposes of marketing. Standing in the shadow of greatness can be overwhelming. Even more so if that shadow is cast by a relative or mentor. How does a writer escape the orbit of those who’ve come before and is it even worth worrying about?
- Saturday, 11:00am – KidFusion – Reading to kids and whatnot. If you’re a kid, you should probably come. I think I’ll bring some Shel Silverstein or something.
- Saturday, 7:00pm – What’s Your Favorite Apocalypse? – A discussion on scientific advances that might tip the world towards an apocalypse.
I’m also planning on getting to the GoH Dinner, if I can drive fast enough on Thursday. And… I’ll be around. Come say hi if you find me there. I’m always happy to chat.
