[conventions] In which I am an idiot

I was just composing an email to a convention committee in relationship to discussions about a future headliner slot. (Don't get excited, it's just talk right now.) I wound up recapping my bio in terms of what is of interest to conrunners/SMOFs as they look to what will draw their fans and make an effective and interesting convention experience. That was an interesting recast of my qualifications.

I also found I've lost track of how many times I've been a GoH or Toastmaster, and where. Which is idiotic, to say the least.

You know, they never told me about this in Famous Writer School.
