I hope everyone is staying healthy and safe these last few months. I’m one of the lucky ones who is able to work from home. It’s both great and lonely and I’ve never been so grateful to have a dog. Tilly is making sure I’m getting up for walks a few times a day and going to bed a reasonable times because there’s no better alarm clock than an alarm clock dog.
Most of the conferences I was planning on going to this year have been cancelled. Fortunately, the Nebula Conference put on by Science Fiction Writers of America is going to be virtual the weekend. In addition to the awards ceremony on Saturday night (which will be streamed live and free to all), they have put together a wonderful list of panels.
I’ll be on two panels on Sunday:
Moving the Line: Advanced Imposter Syndrome – May 31, 2020 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm EST
Panelists:Mike Chen (He/Him), G. V. Anderson, K.M. Szpara, A. T. Greenblatt and Karen Osborne (moderator)
Authors discuss strategies to cope with their own Imposter Syndrome as their careers evolve and they branch out into new areas of writing.
Forming and Sustaining a Successful Writing or Critique Group – May 31, 2020 6:30 pm to 7:30 pm EST
Panelists:A. T. Greenblatt, A.C. Wise, Vylar Kaftan, Curtis C. Chen and Rebecca Gomez Farrell (moderator)
Panelists will discuss the factors that go into building a successful group, both online and in-person, and what they’ve learned about keeping one going.
I’ll be around at the con all weekend “hanging out.” If you’re going to be there too, please feel free to say hello to me.
