anthimeria: Comic book panels (Sequential Art)
PEOPLE, I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS CON.

There's panels about interesting, complicated topics with great discussion and audience participation!  You can walk up to anyone in a badge and start a conversation!  Everyone's friendly and enthusiastic!  We're leaning really, really far to the left and talking about it!  There are panels on everything from Intersectionality in Fandom to Chicks Dig Doctor Who to the Craft of YA Writing to so much more!

And I feel safe at this con.  I've been to a lot of comic cons where my friends and I will be digging through the back issues, and every time some guy--sometimes the guy running the booth!--will comment on the fact that we're girls.  Ooh, girls at a comic con, what will they do?  (I think WisCon's attitude toward oppression in sf/f is rubbing off.  I am okay with this!)  That doesn't happen here.

In equally exciting news, I am meeting lots of fellow spec-fic writers of all stripes!  The workshop went really well this morning, and I met and mingled not just with my group but my friend's, and also the friends of the people in both groups, so as of now I know seven new spec-fic writers well enough to go out for food with them.  And tomorrow at lunch is the Journeyman Writer's meeting, for people with at least one SFWA-qualifying sale, and thanks to S&S, I can go to that!  So I will get to know more aspiring writers!

Friday programming that I did! )

Tomorrow I get to sleep in till 8am!  Then I will lather/rinse/repeat today, hopefully with meeting even more cool people, fellow writers, and awesome audiences.  I need sleep, so I am going to quit rambling and go do that!
