dude_the is here. Hurray! His plane actually made it into the Atlanta airport a half hour early–good jet stream or something. fosteronfilm has immediately set him to work doing graphic art stuff for the DCI Film Festival.
I looked me up in the D*C Pocket Program, and I’ve been added to another panel: “Writing for Online Markets.” Except, err, I don’t. I mean, I’ve sold stories to online publications, but for the most part, my preference for print publication over e-publication means that the majority of my sales have been to hardcopy venues. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with the online kind; I’d spork strange men in the kneecap to sell a story to SCI FICTION, but I don’t think I’m a particularly good authority on Online Markets. It’s also at a really terrible time for me–5:30PM on Saturday. I need to oversee and be available for a big Daily Dragon project at that time, and I wasn’t counting on having to do a panel then. Grr. Argh. I may need to contact the Writing Track director and bow out. But it still leaves me scratching my head as to how I got put on it in the first place. I could understand being put on the “Short Stuff: Writing short stories for fun and profit” panel, but I wasn’t. Err, then again, I’m already doing a panel for the YA LIT track then, so maybe I was and got bounced because the Powers That Be know I can’t be in two places at the same time. Wise PTB.
