[writing] OryCon Report: Saturday and Sunday

Well, another OryCon has come and gone. Once again, I had a great time, go to hang out with many old friends, made many new friends, and got a second done of writerly reinvigoration fresh on the heels of WFC. Orycon is small, but not too small, and it's in Portland which is one of my favorite cities for so many reasons. And so, here is the full report.

As always, Orycon was a great time. It's fun to feel like I'm becoming part of the writing crowd, and thus feel freer to chat with people, go to parties, and have more participation in all aspects of a con. But behind it all is the reminder that there is plenty more to be done with my writing, and it's entirely up to me to put in the work, to continually dig deeper into my stories, and to always try to write the best story I can. One month is left in the year, so I'll be working to close out 2009 on a really strong writing note!

Now it's time for two slices of pizza and a plane flight home! Yay, home! It will be good to be home and see everyone. Can't wait!
