Frolicon and Taxes

fosteronfilm and I are striving to get our taxes done before Frolicon, but the IRS doesn’t exactly go out of its way to provide clear and easy-to-understand documentation. Blah.

Herein my Frolicon schedule:

Friday
11-12:30 Lombard 1 – Writer’s for Relief (with jackzodiac and tstauffer) – Discover what it took to bring about Writers for Relief from the conceptual phase through the printing of the anthology.

Saturday
3:30-5 Lombard 1 – Fairytales and Folklore in Modern Dark/Horror Fiction (with jackzodiac and tstauffer) – Explore the origins of many of the images found in today’s genre fiction. How do today’s dark/horror fiction writers turn age old images upside down and make them modern and edgy?

5-6:30 Lombard 1 – Twisted Relationships in Fiction (with jackzodiac and tstauffer) – What happens when the obvious love relationship is turned on its head? How do you construct twisted but believable relationships in short fiction that won’t leave your reader cold, but panting for more? Why are we drawn to the twisted and unexpected?

Whoa. Saturday’s going to be a bit grueling. Three hours straight, back-to-back. Good thing I’ll be up there with Davey and Toni. I can gab forever with those fab folks.

And I haven’t prepared anything either. I probably ought to jot down some notes or something beforehand.

I’ve become much more cavalier about these panels than I used to be . . .

   


Writing Stuff

New Words:
- 600 on the collaboration I’m doing with mtrimm1, and I volley the ball back over the net. Me likie having someone else to bounce ideas off of, not to mention being able to hand off a story when I hit that “okay, that part’s done . . . now what?” wall.
- 1K on the story for mroctober. It’s taking on a decidedly Lovecraftian feel.

      “Beauchamp” yep. Do you know him?

      • yukinooruoni says:

        Not very well. I attended a couple of panels he was at, and was briefly introduced to him at D*C in the Writers Track.

        Seemed like a fun guy :)

          Davey () is fantastic! I’ve sat on panels with him in the past, and we’ve partied together at conventions. He’s the greatest to work with, and a blast to hang with.

            Well, seeing as I’m stuck with stupid research papers this weekend, I’m going to hold you to a snack if not lunch/dinner at D*C :D

            And as I keep forgetting to email you about this: Yes, I’m interested and available for reporting.

            And that has Nooooooooothing to do with David Prowse and Summer Glau being there this year!! *innocent whistle*

    Only 4,500 words to go! Whoohoo!

    Frolicon sounds like a lot of fun! I wish I were brave enough to attend. Not yet…but it sure is tempting. ;-)

  4. Have great fun at Frolicon. Wish we could be there. Prior commitments here are keeping us at home, double drat! And all that panel experience; you will be a world-class speaker when the con is over–no more stage fright.
    I read all your posts catching up after my Explorer died (it’s still moaning gently with error warnings neatly tucked into the corner). Don’t let lovely kitten near Hobkin. I don’t want to hear of any kitty-skunk grisly tales or bizarre matings. Hobkin is fixed, right? Although I suppose cats with bushy tails and vertical stripes might be interesting if they were closely enough related to create a hybrid? Silly me. Skunk musings!

      Uh huh. And I’ll grow an extra head and wings while I’m at it.

      Oh, no! Is it just IE, or is your computer under the weather? I hope it gets better.

      Gah! Looney Tunes comes to life. Noooo! Fortunately, Hobkin is indeed fixed.
