Life, the Universe and Everything
Anyway, I will be back blogging next weekend. I may even give you some info from the conference! Can't go wrong with workshop titles like "Lloyd Alexander: High King of Fantasy," "Mary Sue and Gary Stu: Avoiding the Dreadful Downfalls of Bad Fiction" (a panel), "Cryptography 101," "Military in Fantasy," "Space Eldritch," "How to Kill a Zombie," (I thought they were already dead!) and my personal favorite, "Everything I Need to Know about Writing I Learned from the Matrix." That's merely a sampler from the first day.
Best of all, the keynote speaker and and sometimes panel member is Megan Whalen Turner, quite possibly the best writer in MG/YA fantasy today. Yep, be envious. Be very, very envious. And read some good fantasy this week!
