I’m finding that the big group events (like the “Casino” this morning) are quite dull. There’s little time to interact with the authors, and you spend more time standing in line than you do anything else. It’s the same with the Pub Crawl today. Nearly 2000 women simultaneously descended upon Bourbon Street just to stand in ridiculously long lines and get more Mardi Gras beads. I mean meeting new people and hanging out in a new city is great but the hurry-up-and-wait mentality is really getting to me.
Which is why at one point today I ditched my plan to attend another big event and went to a small panel on writing fight scenes and I was so glad I did. I definitely plan on attending as many Craft Workshops as possible for the last few days of the conference.
I will say this, though: I make an amazingly adorable but strangely sexy demon. Just saying. I practically inspire my own characters.
Oh and also, Cyndi finally met Victoria Dahl in person and she was so cute as she was getting her picture taken.
