World Fantasy

I’m not doing anything official at this con–I plan to attend panels, hang out with friends old and new, and basically go where my whimsy takes me.

That said, there are a couple of things I will absolutely not miss, so if you’re looking to meet up with me, here’s where I will be:

  • Friday, 11 a.m.: York B&C Room, panel on Defining Urban Fantasy.  This panel features Tim Powers, among others.  And maybe it will help me define what the hell I write.
  • Friday, 1 p.m.: Vaughan Room, panel on Gothic Fantasy Noir.
  • Saturday, 11 a.m.: York B&C Room, panel on The Road to Urban Fantasy.  (Are you sensing a theme yet?)
  • Saturday Night: CZP Fall Launch Party.

I’ve had a couple of months of feeling off my game where writing is concerned: I’ve sent out some stuff that probably wasn’t up to my usual standard, and therefore banked a high number of rejections; I haven’t managed to put in my desired word counts; and I have a backlog of stuff that needs to be re-drafted before it goes out.  I am reminded that this work is not easy work, and that I’m trying to do it on top of a very full-time job, and I do not always succeed in balancing my priorities.

So: time to refocus, recommit, get back on the horse and all those things.  I’m putting on my party boots and going to join my tribe.
