I wish I had more time to talk about the con. But if you google Wiscon 33 or Wiscon 2009 you will probably find tons of posts about it. I’ve never been very good at the journalistic style of writing and also, as a result of attending Wiscon, I’m so behind on my fiction writing I really need to focus on that. Plus, back to work today. You know how that is after having had a three-day weekend. Ugh!
But I will say that I did enjoy most of the panels I attended. My favorites were the care and feeding of vampires (a panel of authors of vampire fiction who talked about how they came up with their vampire characters) and the one about roadblocks to publication , where authors and an editor discussed the things we as writers do to keep ourselves from achieving our writing goals. I have notes on both panels and will blog about them at some point. Oh, and the panel on tech tools for writers was pretty cool too.
Registration is already open for Wiscon 34. The Guests of Honor will be Mary Anne Mohanraj, writer, editor, and spec-fic community activist, and Nnedi Okorafor, author of The Shadow Speaker and Zarah the Windseeker.
However, unfortunately, that’s all I have to say for now about the con as I have to go in to work early this morning and, as I mentioned before, I’m really behind with my writing projects. Really behind. 😦
Oh, I did get to see Star Trek again. This time with my daughter who had not seen it. She loved it! And, as for me, it’s even better the second time around. And Spock is hot. 😀
