I have to share how excited I am about Aussiecon in Melbourne this year.
There are so many things to do! Readings, discussions, panels, lectures Book launches, movies, awards, Sciencefiction, fantasy, Horror its all going to be there. I think I shall be otherwise occupied long enough to be completely exhausted
Stuff to do includes,
Light saber making and training (Mmmm ok that’s tagged as for kids)
Building Lego Daleks (awe kids again. hang on.. there’s an adult session woot!)
and as for the panels..
Everything from Cyberpunk to Feminism, Technology and Gaming Narratives, Fantasy, World Building, Creating fictional wildlife, and Monarchs, history, science , Horror.. and so on, my head is going to explode.
I know most people have holidays to have a holiday.. but I think this is going to be fun!
They have about 10 or so things on at the same time, and picking what to do is going to be hard sometimes.
This means there may be a period of silence from me, and no raids for a week. ( woot!)
It’s supposed to be a cosmic cross now according to my starsign, and this is supposed to be a period of significant change – so I am hoping it will kick my butt into gear to motivate me to write other stuff.
