I have 5 panels (one which *I* am running), 4 sessions critiquing others' stories, 2 sessions where my stories are critiqued, and 2 parties. I will be busy.
Thursday, April 9
- 6:00 PM = Panel: I Just Sold My First Story
I share a panel with VPXI roomie markteppo! Come see Yeff and the BunnyMan babble on!
- Grab some dinner somewhere
- 8:00 PM = my story "We The Hunters, We The Hunted" gets critiqued by David Silas (M), James Glass, Jennifer Brozek, Gra Linnea
- 9PM = Small Press Party
- 11:00 PM = Panel: Science Fiction Spelling Bee
I'm running this! I'm planning to make it fun! Please come by!
Here's the program description: "Sure you know your science fiction words, but can you spell them? Straight from Putnam County , this game mixes difficult words, crazy definitions and off-the-wall sample sentences. Randomly chosen volunteers will have a chance at fun and prizes. Drop on in and see if you can win the Science Fiction Spelling Bee!"
- BarCon. I'm sure I'll need a drink after that day.
Friday, April 10
- Eat Breakfast
- 10:00 AM = Panel: Creating Emotion-Driven SF/F
I'll be the panelist who has no idea what he's doing.
- 11:00 AM = Panel: LOST
This panel, on the other hand, this panel I have down *cold*!

I get to hobnob with the bigwigs.
- 11:00 PM = My Reading
Here's my reading! Program description: "Various Shorts - Stories of Love: cars, cats and fairy tales - Rated PG". Really, the stories are very innocent. Only a couple oblique mentions of sex.
