Norwescon 2014 has begun!
…well, mostly. I’m not there today, because of a previous engagement. But I will be there tomorrow and through the rest of the weekend. If you are in Seattle, you can still get passes at the door, and if you are already at Norwescon, come and find me.
Reading: Erin Evans
Fri 10:30pm-11:00pm Cascade 1
I am going to be reading a scene from Fire in the Blood, the next Brimstone Angels novel!
Fri 6pm-7pm (I don’t know where!)
I was added to this panel late, so I don’t know who’s on it or where it is. But the program will tell you! I’m assuming it’s about making characters insult each other creatively, not insulting creative people, you buncha hacks.

Your Anti-Procrastination First Aid Kit
Sat 4pm-5pm (Check your program!)
I got added to this one late too. Fortunately, I am a master of procrastination so by necessity I am a master of ANTI-procrastination. BAM!
Sun 1:00pm-2:00pm Cascade 3&4
How do you choose a complementary B plot for your story–and where can you add in a C, D, and E plot? How do you know when subplots will make your story richer, and when they’ll just add clutter and confusion?
Keffy R. M. Kehrli (M), Erin Evans, Angel Leigh McCoy, Kevin Radthorne (I heard Erik Scott deBie will be on this one too!)
2 pm-3 pm (Check your program!)
I feel like I always do these panels, but it’s a good fit. I don’t like writing fight scenes, but I have to, so I’ve spent a lot of time thinking about how to break them down and come at them from an angle I do enjoy and I think it works well.
EDIT: If you attended this panel, here is a link to my post on writing fight scenes, and here is a link to “The Resurrection Agent.” Enjoy!
Hope to see some of you there, readers! (Especially at that reading…)
