Observation as Interlude

(and reminder to self that I want to write about my last day at Wiscon before I forget everything)

Since Wiscon, I've been thinking about the huge difference in my experience of reading things written by people I haven't met, and people I have met. Even if I've seen someone only briefly in person, the effect of being able to imagine her in motion - especially if I've heard her voice - changes the way that I perceive her writing, so the posts of writers I saw at Wiscon now stand out much more for me than they did before I could picture them as real people. I love the way the brain works. Text seems different to me if I feel even a little bit familiar with the person who wrote it. I recommend going to cons. :)
