Writer's Weekend, Day 2

Today was the day of many panels, some monofilament sharp, some much less so. I heard an excellent morning panel on credentials by power trio Melissa Singer, Anna Genoese, and Evan Fogelman. That was followed by Lee Lofland, a former police officer speaking on CSI-style criminal procedure, autopsies, and how search warrants really work. Other panels were rather mixed; not all of them clicked, but that's the odds.

I spoke on two panels, "There Is No Story Fairy: Writing Myths" and "Calling Young Writers". I think I was batting about .500, which seemed about par for the day.

I met Guests of Honor Jim MacDonald and Debra Doyle, both very friendly and approachable folks. Jim is the deeply amusing person responsible for Atlanta Nights by Travis Tea. It's a first novel like no other.

My pitch is in the morning, so of course I'm rewriting it. I'm leaving out some of the subplots because there's just not room to talk about EVERYTHING.

Turns out it was three pitches. I've been asked for three partials (chapters and a synopsis). I'm delighted.
