fosteronfilm and I are striving to get our taxes done before Frolicon, but the IRS doesn't exactly go out of its way to provide clear and easy-to-understand documentation. Blah.
Herein my Frolicon schedule:
11-12:30 Lombard 1 - Writer's for Relief (with jackzodiac and tstauffer) - Discover what it took to bring about Writers for Relief from the conceptual phase through the printing of the anthology.
3:30-5 Lombard 1 - Fairytales and Folklore in Modern Dark/Horror Fiction (with jackzodiac and tstauffer) - Explore the origins of many of the images found in today's genre fiction. How do today's dark/horror fiction writers turn age old images upside down and make them modern and edgy?
5-6:30 Lombard 1 - Twisted Relationships in Fiction (with jackzodiac and tstauffer) - What happens when the obvious love relationship is turned on its head? How do you construct twisted but believable relationships in short fiction that won't leave your reader cold, but panting for more? Why are we drawn to the twisted and unexpected?
Whoa. Saturday's going to be a bit grueling. Three hours straight, back-to-back. Good thing I'll be up there with Davey and Toni. I can gab forever with those fab folks.
And I haven't prepared anything either. I probably ought to jot down some notes or something beforehand.
I've become much more cavalier about these panels than I used to be . . .
Well, seeing as I'm stuck with stupid research papers this weekend, I'm going to hold you to a snack if not lunch/dinner at D*C :D
And as I keep forgetting to email you about this: Yes, I'm interested and available for reporting.
And that has Nooooooooothing to do with David Prowse and Summer Glau being there this year!! *innocent whistle*
ach well, me lass ... Were I no' stuck wi' th' terr'ble papers, I'd be'a askin' iffen ye'd be interest'd in attend'n :D
(ok, so I was just looking for an excuse to use that accent, atrocious as my textual representation of it is *grin*)
Have great fun at Frolicon. Wish we could be there. Prior commitments here are keeping us at home, double drat! And all that panel experience; you will be a world-class speaker when the con is over--no more stage fright.
I read all your posts catching up after my Explorer died (it's still moaning gently with error warnings neatly tucked into the corner). Don't let lovely kitten near Hobkin. I don't want to hear of any kitty-skunk grisly tales or bizarre matings. Hobkin is fixed, right? Although I suppose cats with bushy tails and vertical stripes might be interesting if they were closely enough related to create a hybrid? Silly me. Skunk musings!
I wish you could be there too!
"you will be a world-class speaker when the con is over--no more stage fright."
Uh huh. And I'll grow an extra head and wings while I'm at it.
" I read all your posts catching up after my Explorer died (it's still moaning gently with error warnings neatly tucked into the corner)."
Oh, no! Is it just IE, or is your computer under the weather? I hope it gets better.
"Don't let lovely kitten near Hobkin. I don't want to hear of any kitty-skunk grisly tales or bizarre matings. Hobkin is fixed, right?"
Gah! Looney Tunes comes to life. Noooo! Fortunately, Hobkin is indeed fixed.
