[conventions] Hanging out at Paradise Lost

Today is the second full day of Paradise Lost, the writing conference I'm at in San Antonio. We've got a good crew here, including fellow pro mentors John Joseph Adams and Steven Brust, as well as organizer Sean Kelley, my good friends @dratz and Mrs. @dratz, and ton of other fun, interesting people, including a guest appearance from [info]creed_of_hubris yesterday evening, and a guest appearance from my cousin the park ranger this coming evening.

So far we've eaten way too much food, hot tubbed, drank, engaged in deeply inappropriate conversation, played several games of Bang!, drank, critiqued, discussed submittals and editorial etiquette, drank, eaten way too much food, talked a lot about writing, and drank.

Why the hell do I come to these things anyway? Oh, the food. And drinking. (Though in truth, very little of that for me and my liver.)

It's a fun group having a fun time being writers together. I like this part of the writing life, a lot.

Meanwhile, I have a lecture to go be a part of shortly.
