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, […]

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 […]
