All Signed Up for World Fantasy 2010

Well, from World Cup to World Fantasy: I’ve just signed up to attend this year’s World Fantasy in Columbus, Ohio. It runs October 28-31, 2010 and I’m really looking forward to it! I attended WFC in Saratoga Spring, NY in November of 2007 right after my Writers of the Future win and had a great time. My only regret? Not having the guts to go talk to Moebius (too intimidated, and though he spoke English one of the times I wish I’d stuck it out with my French classes…) and that I didn’t buy one of the prints he had for sale in the dealer’s room. D’oh!

The best part of WFC this year? It really only cost my $15. I had $110 US in my PayPal account that I had forgotten about so it cost me almost nothing to register. The hotel will be a different matter, however…

My goal in attending WFC this year is to have the first draft of my novel complete by then, so as to better to schmooze with editors and agents. So there’s no hiding and no shirking now. Just time to buckle down and get writing.

Speaking of which, I should get back to it…

See you in Ohio!
