I'll be at a free Writer's Symposium at BYU for the next three days called Life, the Universe, and Everything. There will be a ton of authors there including Brandon Sanderson (Elantris and Mistborn), James Dashner (The Jimmy Fincher Saga and the 13th Reality), Julie Wright (My Not-So-Fairytale Life), and Tracy Hickman (The ORIGINAL Dragonlance writer) and Laura Hickman. It will be my fourth year attending and it's well worth the time if you're in the area. I'll report on some of the classes over the next few days. Hope to see some of you there!

Quote of the Day: "Words - so innocent and powerless as they are, as standing in a dictionary, how potent for good and evil they become in the hands of one who knows how to combine them."
~Nathaniel Hawthorne

Heh. My Mom goes to this every year. So do the sibs who are still in the area. Sadly, I've yet to make a single Con anywhere. Despite multiple invitations, offers to share hotel rooms, job offers with Con security, etc. Job schedule and raising kids interfere. Curse these cubicle walls! Why do I have to be addicted to shelter, electricity and food???:( lol :)

ROFL! I'll keep my eyes open for any of your family-not that I'll recognize them after-what-20 years? Sheesh, we're getting old.

I am so, so, so sorry I am not going. Since I homeschool, I couldn't figure out what I could do with my guys during the two school days I would be there. I guess I figured it just wasn't my year, ya know?

But next year or maybe the next, the boys will be old enough that I think I could leave them home alone.

Please, please, please share whatever notes you take - I'd love to at least glean what I can from you.

Have a great time!
