I’m here at Foolscap. Arrived a little after 2 pm yesterday, spent some time yesterday after hanging out and (ahem) napping.

Had a 5 pm panel on why we attend SF conventions, followed by a debate party in scarlettina’s room, where about eight of us hung out, ate pizza and howled with laughter at the debate.

Later, opening ceremonies followed by SF Mad Libs followed by some lobby chat followed by an 11 pm bedtime. Up at 5 to write for an hour and forty-five minutes, then lead (sort of) a group walk, then breakfast, then more writing, then blogging.

And now, I’m about to go commit panel again…

Y’all play nice.

So, word on the street is that a certain Hurricane lover with green highlights is interviewing a certain Special Guest next week at Fencon. But you know how the street is...

Really, what were they thinking, those street people?

SF Mad Libs? How did you like them? I created con-based libs for C-Cubed this summer and shared the wealth and am always eager to hear how people respond to them.

It worked pretty well. I moderated, and basically tagged individual panelists and audience members for the various needed words. That kept things moving and avoided shoutdowns.
