Like Jaleigh and Gary and Elizabeth, I’m making the annual pilgrimage to Gen Con for the Writer’s Symposium. Simply put, the WS is the best writing con-within-a-con in the country. It’s also arguably the best writing con in the country, period. If you’re in the environs next week, consider checking it out.
Basically, I’ll be doing Symposium stuff or hiding in a corner or possibly sleeping, so if you need me you can find me doing one of those three things. Also, if you see me, I will probably need coffee and water and food, so have them on hand.
