Life, the Universe, and Everything.
This weekend I’ll be attending Life, the Universe, and Everything – a science fiction/fantasy symposium. This conference has such a fun and relaxed atmosphere. In the past I’ve tried to attend a class in every session of all three days. But this year I’m going to take the opportunity to spend lots of time writing. I’ll attend a class now and then, especially if I get feeling stuck or uninspired. What great energy of writerly minds to get one going again. Plus, Orson Scott Card will be there!
I’m excited to see friends and to learn new things/be reminded of the things I already know. But even more than that, I’m looking forward to a weekend with my newly developing characters and settings.
If you’d like more info on the symposium, you can check out www.LTUE.net. It’s really inexpensive and great for teens, as well as adults. You don’t have to be a sci-fi or fantasy writer to benefit. There are so many great lectures and panels on the writing craft in general that any writer can benefit. Oh, and did I mention that Orson Scott Card, is the keynote speaker?!?!?
Hope to see you there!
