Well, it’s that time of year again … 65,000 of my closest friends have gotten together in five hotels and two convention halls in Atlanta to celebrate all things science fiction!

My schedule is below. I worked right up to the start of the con, so am just now posting this two days later, but for the benefit of the time travelers in my audience, I’ll include the first two panels:

  • Thursday
    • 8:30pm – Start Now, Research! – Hyatt Embassy EF
      How much research is enough? How much is too much? When do you stop doing research and start writing?
  • Friday
    • 7:00pm – ┬áThe People Who Live in Your Book – Hyatt Embassy EF
      Characters rise off the page and become people–if they’re well-crafted. Discover ways to make this happen in your fiction.
  • Saturday
    • 10:00pm – Stories Needed: Get Yourself Invited into an Anthology – Hyatt Embassy EF
      There’s an anthology being published that might just work for a story you have in mind. Or, when you hear about an anthology and KNOW you have a story for it, what do you do? Get some professional help from our pros.
  • Monday
    • 10:00am – Writing About Star Trek – Hilton Galleria 2-3
      There are thousands of worlds within Star Trek, and thousands of topics to talk about. Where do we start? Join a panel of published writers to discuss what’s worth discussing in Trek books, articles and more
    • 1:00pm – Where Do You Get Your Ideas? – Hyatt Embassy EF
       This is a question that every writer gets asked by everyone they know. What is the answer to that question?
    • 2:30pm – Predicting the Future – Hyatt Embassy EF
      Where in the world is fiction headed? Do the old tropes still work? What’s fresh and new for the future?

At each panel, I’ll be giving away signed copies of the writing inspiration book Your Writing Matters by my friend Keiko O’Leary. This is the latest release from Thinking Ink Press, and we’re very proud of it! No matter where you are on your writing journey, I think this book can probably help you, so come on by!

See y’all tomorrow!
