Still, very good fun. No warblogging the Tiptrees for me; my battery was kaput, but I know coffeeandink was taking extensive notes, so there may be coherency later. To be short, the GoH speeches from both McKillip & Arnason were amazing--McKIllip talked about the creative process and the inspirational power of a deadline, and Arnason talked about writing science fiction during the third world war (and welcome to it), harkening back to a lit of the political discussion from the SF Disaster Novel panel. What an extremely erudite and well-read woman she is.
She was making me feel creepily prescient again. But then, the signs are there. We'll see; I'd rather get this stuff wrong.
Then Broad Universe and Livejournal and Pirate Parties, and a long discussion about writing craft with 1crowdedhour and truepenny and desayunoencama, with heresluck and coffeeandink and renenet and oracne camped out on the floor too, putting up with the writer geeks quite tolerably.
ETA: also, dinner with redbird and truepenny was Turkish food, and it was good. Have you noticed the whole woooorld is on livejournal?
Also, met some other lovely writers today. Charming. *g* I am really enjoying this.
All good. I bought a sari. Bed now.
