I know I missed yesterday, and I apologize, but I was wiped out! Not much better today, but I can’t skip the entire weekend.
Standing behind a dealer’s table all day doesn’t sound like hard work, but it is. Plus panels and so on, and it is exhausting. But I love it. 🙂
Registered yesterday for the Austin International Poetry Festival (and submitted poems to be considered for their anthology.) That was cool.
Today I submitted that story to Horror Without Victims that may or may not fit, but at least it is a submission.
One a day is pretty good in the midst of a con…though I missed Thursday completely.
I told you about my Daisy doll, didn’t I? I ordered her to help promote Don’t Go Drinking with Hobbits. Well, she and I are finally in the same place at the same time. Isn’t she lovely?
See the beer mug?
And here is my jewelry all displayed:
Looks pretty good, but I can’t compete with the fancier jewelry. Still need to rethink some things.
Had a really cool panel on Language Creation this evening:
We didn’t out number the audience by much though.
Then I had a panel on Filk, and what it is, where I did a lot of mentioning of Don’t Go Drinking with Hobbits and On the Drift, the Bedlam Bard’s Firefly CD as two stellar examples of Filk. (For those of you not in the Science Fiction/Fantasy community, “filk” music is music that references genre literature/media in a new way. Another example is Weird Al Yankovic’s “Yoda”.)
I came back to the room after a quick bite to eat and started getting ready for bed, totally forgetting that I had another panel at 9 on “Pornography VS Erotica.” Glad I remembered in time, because it was a great panel discussing current trends, where they came from, all sorts of interesting ideas. 🙂 I even had a story idea in the middle of it…if I can only remember what it was…
Too tired for a poem tonight…sorry. But I should be able to get back to normal routine tomorrow as we are through at 4 and not heding back until Monday morning.
