Friday August 31st: (Updated to add Pyr panel!)
1:30 – 3:00 PM Pyr Rising: Columbus Hall, Rooms A&B. A shared panel between Dragon Con and Worldcon. This will be extra fun because I have been in a writing workshop all week with one of the other Pyr authors, E.C. Myers. He will be on the Dragon Con side while I will be at Worldcon. Pretty fun. And by the way, Mr. Myers is a fine writer. Which I would expect from Pyr. But just saying. We are sworn to secrecy about what other people share of their work here, but I think we are allowed to say it’s good.
3:00 PM. Broad Universe Rapid-Fire Reading. I’ll join a number of great female writers for very short readings. I will read from Mayan December (this is, after all, 2012!) and I will give away a few copies. These are always a lot of fun – drop by and hear great snippets from interesting readers. Laugh a lot. This will be in Grand Suite 3.
5:00 PM to 5:30, I’ll be the “Writer under glass” where I get to work on a collaborative story, and have people watch me while I do it! I’ve never done such a thing, and I have no idea if I’ll like it. But the resulting manuscript will go into the charity auction….I hear this is in the Fan Lounge.
Saturday, September 1st
12:00 – 1:30: The Art of Worldbuilding – Crystal C Physical geography, economics and politics, religions, conflicts.
