Busy Weekend: It's Con Season
I sat on the Mad Scientist panel Friday night. It wasn't until 9 pm which meant raucous hilarity. We had 8 or 9 of us on the panel. There even was a question that applied to my other degree: MA Professional Communication. The questioner asked whether we could realistically expect to communicate with an alien lifeform. The much longer answer boils down to this--it's not that simple.
The rest of the time I visited with lots of great friends, made some new ones, checked out books and the vendor area, and attended a few panels. All in all, the trip was amazing! And I'm glad that one of my local SCWA chapter members, Marcia, was able to go with me. It was good for both of us to get away from the regular day-to-day of our lives. Thanks to Marcia, I can share these pictures from the panels, too.
I got home Sunday afternoon in time to stuff some food in my mouth and turn around to meet my daughter, Heidi Cox, and her boyfriend, Jonathan London, for the Reedy Reels Film Festival Awards Ceremony in Greenville, SC. Since I'd committed to ConCarolinas before we knew about her participation in the film festival, I wanted to make sure to get home in time to attend the awards. AND...
Her film, Chasing Fletcher Allen, won BEST SHORT FILM!!!! Here's a brief vidoe of their acceptance speech.
So, that's my week. I'm gearing up for more events this month and will be starting to do some more giveaways on my newsletter. If you're not subscribed and want in on some prize opportunities, make sure you sign up for The Watchers Tribe newsletter.
