Tomorrow morning – barring unforeseen catastrophe – I’ll be flying out to Chapel Hill for ConTemporal! I’m very much looking forward to the trip, and to seeing people I’ve largely missed for the last few years – never mind meeting at least one adorable new baby (maybe two!).
I predict that a good time will be had by all. And here’s where and when I, personally, will be having it:*
6:00 p.m. – Venetian Room – Pre-Convention Dinner
5:00 p.m. – Venetian Room – Steampunk: Aesthetic or Genre?
7:00 p.m. – Venetian Room – Port Opening Ceremonies
11:00 a.m. – Venetian Room – Sequential Art vs. Novel Writing
4:00 p.m. – London I – How to Handle Multiple-POV Stories
11:00 a.m. – Venetian Room – The Weird West
Noon – London I – Rewriting History
1:00 p.m. – Venetian Room – Closing Ceremonies
All the usual rules apply – which is to say, there’s a six-foot No Shyness Zone around me at all times, so if you see me come on up and say “hello!” Show me your costume; tell me how your day’s going. Ask me about my cat, or my Surprise! tomatoes.
Also, I’m happy to sign any books or magazines, assuming I either wrote them or wrote something in them. That’s what I’m there for! I promise: Unless you catch me in a bathroom and/or with food in my mouth, you aren’t interrupting anything or bothering me.
I likely won’t be blogging, because I don’t plan to bring my laptop – but I’ll have my phone, so there will be Tweets ‘n Pics a’plenty…and if I can get the Facebook App to work right, I’ll update my page over there as well.
Anyway! Time for me to log off, as my husband and an old friend have decided to cook for me (and the friend’s girlfriend), like I was going to stop them or something. But I need to run around the house and tidy up a bit, and maybe brush my hair or something.
Have a good weekend, everyone. Thanks for reading, and I hope to see some of you in North Carolina!
* Tentatively. I don’t think I’ve ever done an event where something didn’t change at the last minute – but this is the info I have for now, so here you go.
