The WFC Post

Things I loved about going to World Fantasy Con, in no particular order:

1) It’s the first major genre con I’ve ever been too, unless you count ComicCon, which I don’t. That’s more of an amusement park. (Not that that’s a bad thing.)
2) Having dinner that first night with all my VPX pals.
3) Also: getting to see VPX pals I hadn’t seen in 5 years – Terri-Lynne, Barbara, Nikki. Hugs all around!
4) Readers Theatre with 20+ people in CSE Cooney and Tina Connolly’s room. I was the anonymous troll asshole in one of the plays, which was fun. Especially Terri-Lynne as a punk rock freak. 
5) Having a couple of people recognize my voice. MY FREAKING VOICE. That was fucking awesome, and totally flattering, and made my weekend right there.
6) Meeting so many of the cool authors and readers from PodCastle, and getting to talk and hang out with them a bit.
7) The Escape Artists coffee hour with Mur, Hobson, Tina, Caroline, Sam, Bart, Kelly, BlueLu, and Tempest .
8) Kelly taking Bart, Sam, and me off-campus to have dinner at El Zarape, and the subsequent walk and conversations post-dinner. Awesome stuff was talked about, and I apparently only know the half of it. (Or more likely: probably even less.)
9) That Neil Gaiman and Connie Willis were the guests of honor. 
10) Walking into a VP jam session. Awesomely surreal.
11) Talking with Ferrett and Keffy for a couple hours outside of a couple of parties, talking about the hazards of slush, writing, and other   fun things.
12) The ridiculously huge autograph session.
13) Reconnecting and expanding my tribe and feeling generally pretty damn inspired to do some more writing.

In short, if I met you at WFC and got to hang out with you, whether it was for a couple minutes at the bar or the con suite, or at night, or something else, THANK YOU SO MUCH. You inspired me, and you’re awesome. I hope I get to hang out with you again soon!

It was great! I'm glad we got to hang out some :)

I am trying to convince the family for FogCon...

It was great to see you - I only wish I could have met the rest of the family!
And I'm not at all surprised that your voice was recognised - who could mistake those mellifluous tones? (yay! I got to say mellifluous!)

It made me SO HAPPY to get to talk with you, Barbara :)

(Mellifluous. I'm pretty sure that's a first too! :)
