Westercon is coming!

So July 5th – 8th, I am going to be at Westercon and I have received my schedule.

First of all, I’m going to have some drawings in the Art Show including this Sea Serpent along with seven other inked drawings.  I’m not worried about how my artwork will be received and I have done drawing comic classes before, but there all kinds of firsts with Westercon and I can’t even begin to say how nervous I am about this convention.

I will do my first panel discussions as well as my first reading.

So right now I am hoping I don’t forget how to read! I know I am reading from Other Systems. Part of me thinks I should read something from act 1: so maybe Chapter 6. Or maybe Chapter 26 since that is one of my favorite chapters.  (If anyone has an opinion let me know!)

I also am amazed to find that my autograph time is on primetime Saturday. While I have signed plenty of books at my booths, I’ve never had a scheduled autograph time.

Anyway, here is my schedule…. the other names are the folks on the discussions with me.


Thu Jul 5 4:00:pm Thu Jul 5 5:00:pm Whining vs. Angst: Fine Lines in Characterization
Cascade 3-4 Your contemplative character never seems to stop thinking and do something! Your action hero is coming through as a brainless Neanderthal. How do you round out characters without changing their essential purpose in the story or losing the reader’s sympathy? Creating original characters with interesting quirks walks a fine line between too much and too little. Getting it wrong can prevent the story from breaking into the Sold! category.
