YDP Audio Roadshow — Is anyone out there?

Just discovered that somehow when I converted the last roadshow to an mp3 format, it wiped out the actual show.  No one has thought to tell me this before now.  And while I gave it a listen to in .wav format, I converted it and put it up without listening to it again. Frankly, I’m […]

Existential questions for 500 Alex: Did I happen to FenCon, or did FenCon happento me?

Didn’t see as many people at FenCon as I would’ve liked. And many of them were a fast hibye. That’s because I took Little Miss with me along with hubby and our friend from high school, Josh. (hubby and I went to different high schools, Josh went to both of them.) FenCon for me was […]

Things I wish I’d done at Worldcon

I enjoyed the trip. And it was very productive. But If I could do it over again, I would do a few things differently. Me, living with the pain of regret. Or is it just that I’m sitting on a pile of swords? 1. I would have gone to that panel on getting an agent, […]

Signs you might have a bad flight

1. You see a bigger name author and think: the plane can’t crash now. No one would care if I’m on it. 2. Your cooler leaks water everywhere. 3. You find out when you sit in a puddle on your seat. 4. Your carry on won’t fit in the overhead bin. 5. Your pilot’s last […]

Worldcon Day 4 – In Which the shoe fairies are weird.

On Saturday morning, I reached for my glasses, and promptly fumbled them off the bed. I went after them with a flashlight, and found a Bokken. Since I’ve had the room since Thursday, it’s not connected with the Convention. After making sure it’s not my roommates’, I turned it in to the hotel. Immediately, I […]

Worldcon Day 3, In which there is a lot of walking.

The funny thing about conventions is that I never sleep in as late as I want to. I may not have a panel until 1:00, but I still wake at 9:30. Today there wasn’t a panel at 1:00, there was a SFWA meeting at 10:00. There, stuff happened. (it was a business meeting, what do […]

Worldcon Day 2 or, Tracy becomes strong in Ribbon Fu

Unlike Dragon*Con, Worldcon is actually quite a bit like most other large regional literary conventions that I’ve been to, but on a much bigger scale. There aren’t as many elaborate costumes, or rage-inducing crowds that keep you from getting anywhere in a hurry (but there isn’t that fun parade, either). The elevator lines are just […]

In which it is all Hugh Jackman’s fault

I should have slept early last night, but a night without the baby is a night for a movie. We went to see The Wolverine, so if I’m grumpy tonight at Worldcon, it’s all Hugh Jackman’s Fault. Hubby did not grow up reading Wolverine The way I did, so he has no frame of reference […]

Housekeeping

Doing some basic housekeeping on my website and getting ready for Worldcon (It’s never too soon).  Prepping swag, updating my bibliography, that kind of thing.  Better to do it now, than to be trying to do it the night before (when I have to be in Tulsa to fly at 5 am.   Who am […]
